This EBC Site Remediation and Redevelopment program will focus on the current state of the Massachusetts Brownfields Tax Credit program and improvements to the EPA Brownfields Program made possible by the 2018 Better Utilization of Investments Leading to Development Act (BUILD Act). Program speakers will include EPA staff discussing how the BUILD Act will affect Brownfields assessment and remediation, as well as updates from Massachusetts state agencies on the MassDevelopment Brownfields Redevelopment Fund and updates on Massachusetts Department of Revenue Brownfields Tax Credit program implementation.
The moderated panel discussion following speaker presentations will discuss how state tax incentives, financing programs, and the BUILD Act can be further leveraged to create even more success and facilitate redevelopment projects. Adequate time will be provided for active audience.
General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (2.0) training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
