Upcoming Events and Opportunities

Teach-Learn-Connect Series

We are launching a Community of Practice specifically dedicated to local leaders and planners from current and former nuclear host communities

The Nuclear Communities Technical Assistance team is hosting a Community of Practice (CoP) to bring together communities from across the country for a series of conversations around ideas, experiences, and resources that contribute to the long term economic, social, and environmental resilience of nuclear host communities and regions.

These conversations are meant to serve as space for local leaders and economic development officials to build relationships with their counterparts from peer communities and collaborate on long-term planning approaches for their municipality and region. 

We are looking forward to supporting local leaders and practitioners as they shape the narrative and set a guiding footprint for nuclear host communities across the country.

Participation in the Teach-Learn-Connect Series is by invitation only. If you serve as a local leader or economic development practitioner for a nuclear host community and would like to be invited to join the conversation, reach out to Martina at 


Reads and Resources

The Brownfields Redevelopment Tax Incentive Reauthorization Act of 2021 needs your support

On July 13th, 2021, Representatives Turner (OH-10) and Sherrill (NJ-11) introduced the Brownfields Redevelopment Tax Incentive Reauthorization Act of 2021 in Congress to allow developers to deduct the cleanup costs of all contaminated property in the year the costs were incurred. 

The redevelopment of brownfields generates increased tax revenue for local, state, and federal governments from formerly idle, non-income producing properties — including former power plant sites.


Restoring this vital tax credit to revitalize our communities is long overdue. We encourage you to reach out to your Representatives today and urge them to cosponsor the bipartisan bill H.R. 4427.
