The Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission (CVRPC) is poised to help breathe new life into contaminated properties with a $400,000 award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  When environmental investigation concerns or costs deter a redevelopment project, CVRPC can provide funding to research the issues, test for hazardous substances, and design a cleanup plan.  CVRPC is currently accepting applications for funding on a rolling basis.

Both public and private improvement and redevelopment projects are eligible.  The CVRPC Brownfields Program has supported redevelopment of City Place, Ayer’s Autobody and The ReStore in Barre City, as well as The Center for Arts & Learning and Turntable Park in Montpelier.  Along with the Vermont Brownfields Liability Limitation Program, these environmental assessments are important tools in managing environmental risk.

CVRPC is available to assist municipal officials, as well as private property and business owners with navigating contamination concerns.  Please contact Gail Aloisio at 802-229-0389 or  Further informational materials are attached.
