NEWMOA Brownfields Workgroup facilitates various information sharing and technical efforts related to Brownfields and other state waste site cleanup programs.
Annual States/EPA Meetings: State and US EPA program staff discuss important brownfields and voluntary site cleanup program implementation issues.
Value of State Voluntary Site Cleanup Programs: State staff provide essential services that directly lead to the success of Brownfields and other waste site cleanup efforts. A primary source of funding for waste site cleanup programs are Brownfields 128(a) grants from EPA. Since 2009, 128(a) funding for the New England states has been reduced by approximately 25 percent, which has affected their ability to adequately support projects. NEWMOA developed the following state-specific brochures to help educate the public and policymakers about the value of the state waste site cleanup programs.
