Partner with us and take the first step toward a sustainable community

Communities across the country have benefited from the funds our Brownfields team helped secure. The most recent Brownfields grant cycle was our most successful to date. Our clients were awarded EPA Brownfield Assessment and Cleanup Grants totaling $8.6 million in funding. If you’re looking to revitalize an abandoned and/or contaminated property, our Brownfields team is ready to partner with you. Let’s work together to build your Brownfields program!

Join us at Booth 602 and meet our Brownfields professionals.
