Upcoming seminars and workshops

July 22, 2014: EPA brownfields grant writing workshop

This workshop will focus on helping community grant writers produce successful proposals for the EPA Assessment, Clean-Up and Revolving Loan Fund (ARC) grants. Presenters from DNR's RR Program, EPA Region 5 and Kansas State University's Technical Assistance for Brownfields Communities (TAB) program will discuss the basics of the ARC grants, eligibility requirements, the application process and proposal writing tips and resources. Participants will review real examples and be given ample opportunity to ask questions. Even if you are not writing a proposal this year, the workshop can be a valuable planning tool for local governments interested in brownfields redevelopment.

Space will be limited but a live webinar feed will also be available.
