Cardno assists 15 Southeastern communities in securing EPA Brownfields Grants
Cardno, a professional infrastructure and environmental services firm, is proud to have supported 15 communities in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia, in winning more than $4 million in brownfields assessment and cleanup grants from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Cardno is a national brownfields leader with a high rate of success in securing grant funding for communities. In this grant cycle, awards were issued to the following communities:
- in Florida: City of Deland, Gadsden County, City of Tallahassee
- in Georgia: City of Atlanta, City of College Park, City of Doraville, Mitchell County, City of Sandersville
- in North Carolina: Burke County, City of Greenville, City of Wilson

Cardno’s brownfields grant writing team assisted each community with preparing and writing the grant applications, helping win awards for more than 70% of the grants applied for. In addition to grant writing, Cardno can assist communities with all phases of the brownfields redevelopment process, including securing state grants and other incentives, planning, sustainability and environmental services, program management, and site redevelopment.
“We’re very pleased to have partnered with these communities to secure these important EPA grants that will help them meet their redevelopment goals,” said Roger Register, Cardno’s National Brownfields Practice Leader. “Each award winner is a step closer to realizing a better vision for their community, residents, and visitors.”
The full list of EPA fiscal year 2017 award-winning communities is available in the EPA announcement.
