The Phoenix Awards inspire and recognize exemplary brownfield redevelopment and revitalization. Winning projects offer a fresh take on significant environmental issues, show innovation and demonstrate masterful community impact.
The deadline to submit applications is October 4, 2017 and the chances for recognition are even greater. Two years of winners will be recognized at the Awards Ceremony at Brownfields 2017 in Pittsburgh, PA. The award program honors approximately 12-15 projects for each award year.
For each award year, one winner is selected from each of EPA's 10 regions, and additional special winners are selected for community impact, sustainability or other special achievements. Projects are judged primarily upon:
Any individual, group, company, organization, government body or agency is eligible to apply for a Phoenix Award. Applications may be submitted by an individual in-volved in the project or by a third party, with the primary project coordinator, e.g., property owner, environmental engineering firm, or project developer, or the entire project team listed as the applicant.
In order to be considered, the brownfield redevelopment project must have been completed by the date the application is submitted. Projects are deemed "complete" if the end-use is being conducted at the site. Start applying now!
