The Council for Urban Economic Development (CUED) invites you to
participate in a workshop on brownfields redevelopment, a topic that the
U.S. Conference of Mayors recently identified as the most significant
environmental issue in our nation today.  Because the workshop is

offer it to you at a discount price of $55 for CUED members and $65 for

EPA, HUD, and EDA all have programs dedicated to supporting the

You will have the opportunity to learn about:
  Contamination, cleanup techniques and costs.
  Ways to overcome the liabilities associated with brownfields.
  Applicable federal and state laws.
  Where to get federal, state, and local funds. 
  Mechanisms for community involvement.
