Brownfields

The Regional Brownfields Partnership (RBP)

The RBP is a voluntary association of municipalities across west central Connecticut. NVCOG is host to the RBP, through which 27 eligible cities and towns are able to access brownfield funding. There are hundreds of vacant or underutilized sites known to be held back by environmental concerns in the state of Connecticut.

Through shared resources, common sense strategies, and site prioritization, the Regional Brownfields Partnership (RBP) ensures our state is moving forward.

The RBP rose out of the Naugatuck Valley Brownfields Pilot program established by an EPA grant in 1996. The RBP is geographically diverse, representing a collection of historic downtowns, neighborhood centers, and surrounding suburban and rural communities.
