To advance understanding of states and federal Brownfield programs and opportunities, the Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association (NEWMOA), the Technical Assistance to Brownfield Communities (TAB) program at the University of Connecticut (UConn), & state & federal partners organized a regional Summit.

  • Promote best practice & lessons learned across states
