What is TAB?

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:

  • Delaware
  • Maryland
  • Pennsylvania
  • Virginia
  • 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:

People discussing redevelopment
  1. 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;
  2. Increase awareness of financing opportunities for brownfield remediation and redevelopment, including public funding such as EPA Brownfields grants;
  3. Increase community involvement in identification, remediation, and re-use of brownfields; and
  4. Build local capacity to navigate the redevelopment process on brownfield projects, from site identification to successful redevelopment.
