No-Cost Help Redeveloping Brownfield

City officials can receive no-cost help redeveloping brownfield sites through the Technical Assistance to Brownfield Communities (TAB) Program. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funds the program to assist communities in identifying, assessing, cleaning up, or redeveloping brownfields.

The New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) serves the TAB Program's Region 4, which includes Kentucky. NJIT provides free technical assistance to local governments and nonprofits, including guidance on funding opportunities, reviewing and critiquing grant applications, developing strategic plans, community assets and needs workshops, explaining cleanup technologies, and more. Services are provided through a Brownfield Academy, community engagement and education, and one-on-one technical assistance.
