WRC receives $400,000 in EPA Brownfields Grant Funding to use in the Region

EPA recently announced that the Windham Regional Commission will receive $400,000 in EPA Brownfields Assessment Grant funds (petroleum and hazardous substances).  All together this funding has brought a total of $3.15 million dollars in federal Brownfields funds to the region since the program’s inception in 2000. Brownfields are land and buildings whose expansion, redevelopment, or reuse may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.

This successful program has been instrumental in helping revitalize former industrial and commercial sites, turning them from underutilized properties to productive business and community use. If you are interested in learning more about the  WRC Brownfields program or have a site that might benefit from the program, please call WRC (257-4547) to contact Susan ( This email address is being protected from spambots.
