Infrastructure/Site Development Resources
- Council of Development Finance Agencies (CDFA) Brownfields Technical Assistance Program—The CDFA Brownfields Technical Assistance Program is funded by a grant from the U.S. EPA to provide assistance to communities throughout the country that are looking to finance the redevelopment of brownfield sites. Under this grant, CDFA will provide education, resources, research, and networking on revolving loan funds, tax incentives, tax increment finance and other tools available for redevelopment finance. Specific program activities include a resource center, webinar series, project marketplace, and project response teams.
- Federal Highway Administration's On-the-Job Training and Supportive Services Programs—The OJT/SS Program requires state transportation agencies to establish apprenticeship and training programs targeted to move women, minorities, and disadvantaged individuals into journey-level positions to ensure that a competent workforce is available to meet highway construction hiring needs, and to address the historical under-representation of these groups in highway construction skilled crafts.
- State Transportation Agencies (STAs)
- U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Revitalization of Brownfield Sites—EPA has technical assistance programs that can help communities determine site reuse potential and viability.
- EPA's Targeted Brownfields Assessments—The TBA program is designed to help states, tribes, and municipalities—especially those without EPA Brownfields Assessment Pilots/Grants—minimize the uncertainties of contamination often associated with brownfields. TBAs supplement and work with other efforts under EPA's Brownfields Program to promote the cleanup and redevelopment of brownfields.
- EPA's Technical Assistance to Brownfields Communities—The TAB program provides technical assistance to communities and other stakeholders on brownfields issues, with the goal of increasing the community's understanding and involvement in brownfield cleanup and revitalization, to help move brownfields sites forward toward cleanup and reuse.
