    The NJEDA is currently preparing to launch two innovative programs supporting brownfields revitalization. The Brownfields Redevelopment Incentive Program will provide tax credits to support brownfield redevelopment projects and the Brownfield Impact Fund will make financing available for brownfield remediation and revitalization.  The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJDEA) also continues to develop new programs as part of the Authority's "Community Revitalization" initiative. Join NJEDA Director of Brownfields and Sustainable Systems Elizabeth Limbrick for an in-depth discussion of the benefits these programs offer and how to apply as well as information on upcoming programs supporting brownfields redevelopment in New Jersey and the region.

    This  session promises well-rounded insight from professionals including attorney Steven Humphreys, of Kelley, Drye & Warren LLP and Michael Seeve of Mountain Development Corp. involved in all aspects of brownfields redevelopment in New Jersey and the region.
