The purpose of this meeting is to hear from representatives of nonprofits, using the following questions to guide the discussion: How does your nonprofit organization view its role in brownfields cleanup and redevelopment? What benefits and barriers exist to nonprofits leading brownfield cleanup and redevelopment projects? How can EPA best engage with nonprofit organizations that are most interested in leading brownfields cleanup and redevelopment?
In addition to the open discussion and listening session, stakeholders may respond in writing to the guiding questions mentioned above during a three-week comment period that will commence upon publication of this notice. Comments will be accepted through April 23, 2021 and should be submitted through email to EPA's Office of Brownfields and Land Revitalization at BUILDAct@epa.gov.
