About the Hosts
The West Virginia Brownfields Conference is hosted by the West Virginia Brownfield Assistance Centers – the Northern West Virginia Brownfields Assistance Center located at West Virginia University and the Brownfields Assistance Center at Marshall University. The Central Appalachian Regional Brownfields Summit is a collaborative effort between the WVBACs and state and federal agencies and service providers throughout Central Appalachia.
The Centers were created to promote economic development and environmental and public health protection through innovative redevelopment of brownfield sites. The Centers promote and coordinate the development of brownfield property by providing technical assistance, facilitating site redevelopment efforts, community involvement as well as helping communities with grant writing and leveraging project funding. In an effort to provide comprehensive assistance to communities throughout West Virginia, the Centers coordinate by producing state-wide conferences, collaborating on regional projects, and by sharing current brownfields information.
