The U.S. EPA’s Technical Assistance to Brownfields (TAB) program helps communities and stakeholders address their brownfield sites.
WVU TAB serves EPA Region 3, which includes:
- West Virginia
- Washington, D.C.
We offer expertise and guidance on a number of brownfield related topics, including health
impacts, site assessment, remediation, redevelopment, and reuse.
We aim to:
- Increase public understanding and awareness of brownfields redevelopment and related issues, including environmental impacts, health impacts, remediation methods, opportunities for economic development, and state and federal brownfield resources;
- Increase awareness of financing opportunities for brownfield remediation and redevelopment, including public funding such as EPA Brownfields grants;
- Increase community involvement in identification, remediation, and re-use of brownfields; and
- Build local capacity to navigate the redevelopment process on brownfield projects, from site identification to successful redevelopment.
