DEM To Host December 5th EPA Workshop On Brownfields Grant Guidelines

PROVIDENCE The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM), in partnership with the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), will host an informational workshop on the brownfields grant application process next week. Participants will learn how to apply for federal funding sources and prepare a well-conceived application for brownfields multipurpose, assessment, and cleanup grants.

WHAT: 2019 Grant Guidelines for USEPA Brownfields Multipurpose, Assessment, and Cleanup Grants

WHERE: DEM Headquarters | Room 300 235 Promenade Street Providence, Rhode Island

WHEN: Wednesday, December 5, 2018 | 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

WHO: This session is presented by USEPA and open to those interested in applying for federal brownfields grant funding. USEPA Region 1 brownfields staff will provide key points for writing a winning proposal and answer participants' questions about preparing a grant application. Separate breakout sessions will be held on assessment grant guidelines and cleanup grant guidelines. For potential multipurpose grant applicants, a separate Q&A period will follow the assessment grant breakout session. If applicants are interested in applying for more than one type of grant, it is suggested that two people attend the workshop.

To register for the December 5th workshop, visit USEPA's Registration Page. Due to space limitations, registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Along with the Rhode Island workshop, USEPA will hold five additional workshops in New England states this month.

New USEPA Brownfields Grant Guidelines are now available on the USEPA website.
