Could you please post/publicize a conference that USEPA & HUD are putting together in Chicago. This conference is geared toward providing experienced practitioners with tools to build their communities. I'd like to call your attention to three important elements of this agenda: 1. Brownfields - not only will the conference present background and current trends in brownfield redevelopment, including successful case studies, but a HUD representative will provide insights into preparing a competitive application for the current $25 million 108/EDI Brownfield NOFA. If any community has received USEPA seed money for Brownfield planning, this is the HUD funding for project implementation. 2. Energy Efficiency - not only will speakers explain the link between energy efficiency and affordability, and highlight the opportunities presented by rehab, but USDOE has offered to follow up with on site technical assistance to local governments that attend the conference. 3. Lead Based Paint - not only will speakers review LBP concerns relating to rehab, but HUD will highlight changes in the 1992 Act (Title X - see June, 1996 proposed regulations) that will dramatically affect CDBG and HOME funded rehab. Please do not hesitate to call me or visit our website http://www.hud.gov/local/chi/chienv22.html for more information. Registration should be made directly with the University of Illinois at 312-996-6904. I look forward to seeing you in June.
