Federal agencies recognize the value of brownfields revitalization and the value of brownfields revitalization projects to community renewal and economic redevelopment. Many federal government funding and technical assistance programs can promote and enhance many aspects of local revitalization and redevelopment efforts. Local communities often can take advantage of federal resources to identify and address bureaucratic barriers to addressing local needs, and pilot-test new approaches and model projects. Federal funding opportunities often can be used to attract and leverage additional local and regional investments in land revitalization projects. For more information on funding available for brownfields revitalization project across a wide range of federal agencies, consult the Brownfields Federal Programs Guide (PDF) (90 pp, 3.29M).

One example of a strong federal partnership is the Partnership for Sustainable Communities, an unprecedented agreement to coordinate federal housing, transportation and environmental investments; protect public health and the environment; promote equitable development, and help address the challenges of climate change. Since 2009, EPA, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) are working together to promote more sustainable development in communities by more effectively targeting federal resources and removing existing federal regulatory and policy barriers to smart and sustainable development.
