The redevelopment of brownfields and the revitalization of neighborhoods can require substantial funding. EPA will host a national webcast to present and explain how EPA brownfield grantees and local community leaders can use the "resource roadmapping" approach to match project costs and needs with sources of funding and finance, and to implement practical strategies for securing grants, low-cost funding, incentives, and innovative finance sources for brownfields and community revitalization. The webcast will outline how to use a Resource Roadmap, a Funding Matrix, and a Briefing Sheet to improve your effectiveness in leveraging resources, and will feature experts in project funding along with a municipal manager who has used the resource roadmap approach to leverage tens of millions of dollars of funding in two different communities, one in Pennsylvania and one in Colorado.
