Iowa’s Department of Natural Resources will conduct a workshop later this month to help communities identify resources to redevelop and revitalize areas with environmental contamination. The workshop, titled Funding Economic Development and Land Revitalization through Brownfields: Brownfields Redevelopment Resources for Your Region, will be held September 21 in partnership with the Technical Assistance to Brownfields program at Kansas State University.
The event will help communities learn how to manage successful redevelopment projects, including securing funding and technical assistance through local, state, and federal resources. It is designed for local and regional government and economic development staff, community members and grant writers, real estate developers and brokers, financial lenders, city and regional planners, and others.
If your state is interested in conducting similar outreach, contact Sheree Walsh at Kansas State for more information.
