How EPA’s Brownfields Program Helps Massachusetts Communities: My Testimony Before Congress

Veronica Eady

Today, I am one of five people from the private sector testifying before Congress about the importance of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Brownfields Program, and how it is helping local communities here in Massachusetts and across the nation.

CLF has long played a role in the redevelopment of brownfields – former commercial or industrial properties that often remain blighted and undeveloped because of contamination issues.

We’ve helped communities articulate their vision for these sites embedded in their neighborhoods, provided technical assistance to cities and towns looking to clean up and redevelop them, and advocates for more funding at the state level in partnership with the Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance.
