May 25, 2023: The Monadnock Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) is proud to announce that it has received a $1,000,000 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to launch a Brownfields Revolving Loan Fund program in the Monadnock Region. The Keene-based regional development corporation is one of 10 entities in the United States to win the award.
The program will provide grants and loans to clean hazardous waste sites in support of new development. For several reasons, commercial sites become contaminated which can impact public health and make the site undevelopable. Common “Brownfield” sites include old factories, dry cleaners, or gas stations. The goal of the program is to improve lives by helping the environment, improving public health, and growing the local economy.
The program is expected to launch in late 2023. Detailed funding information will be published here as it becomes available.
