    Applications for the NJEDA’s new Brownfields Loan Program open on January 14th, 2021! Learn more and apply today at https://www.njeda.com/bfloans.

    The Brownfields Loan Program provides low-interest loans of up to $5 million to potential brownfield site purchasers and current brownfield site owners who intend to develop commercial, retail, or mixed-use developments, expansions, or reuses. Unlike many funding sources for brownfields projects, the Brownfields Loan Program will finance pre-construction planning, demolition, asbestos, PCB removal, and lead-based paint remediation.

    Applications will be open from January 14th to April 13th, 2021. Loans will be awarded through a competitive application process, with projects receiving scores based on various details about the brownfield site and the proposed redevelopment project. Projects that provide beneficial end uses will receive higher scores.

    Learn more and prepare to apply today at https://www.njeda.com/bfloans.

    Are you looking for ways to connect with fellow NJSWEP members, become more visible in the organization, and cultivate your leadership skills?   Consider joining the NJSWEP Steering Committee! 

     

    Dear NJSWEP Members,

     

    Are you looking for ways to connect with fellow NJSWEP members, become more visible in the organization, and cultivate your leadership skills? Now is your chance! We have openings in several of our committees, and are looking for volunteers to join us either as Committee Chair or as a Committee Member. You can contribute as much – or as little – of your skills and time as you’d like. We are looking for the following positions:

    News and Announcements Committee Chair
    The News Committee members take pictures and write short summaries of NJSWEP events to be published on the NJSWEP website and sent out through email blasts. The committee also uses our website and email blasts to apprise members of news, upcoming NJSWEP events, and other events that may be of interest to NJSWEP members. In addition, the committee prepares a year-in-review email that is sent to NJSWEP members in December and serves to document the history of NJSWEP. The position is great for people looking to attend a variety of events while promoting, photographing, and documenting NJSWEP events, and sharing your editorial skills in the role of News and Announcements Committee Chair.

    Gala Committee Chair
    The Gala Committee is responsible for planning the annual NJSWEP Gala, our premier event of the year. The Gala celebrates women who have made a significant contribution to the environmental community with the Growing Great Women in the Garden State Award. The Gala also celebrates future environmental professionals with the presentation of NJSWEP’s annual scholarship awards. The Gala Committee is responsible for soliciting nominations for the Growing Great Women award, selecting the recipient, scouting the Gala venue, and planning all details of the events, including the event program, invitations, registration, menu, décor, favors, and designing the award.  This is a well-established committee that has been functional for several years; current committee members will serve as liaisons with the award recipient, the scholarship committee, and the sponsorship committee.

    Programs Committee
    Whether you have a great idea for a one-time event that you would like to make happen or are interested in helping to develop, organize, coordinate, and/or market our regular calendar of events, the Programs Committee is your opportunity to help shape NJSWEP.  Our events and programs are our core function and are integral to the success of NJSWEP. The programs can be educational, technical, and/or social, to provide attendees with an outlet to embrace personal and professional development.

    The success of this organization can be attributed to the members who have volunteered their time in various leadership positions. We look forward to hearing from you. If you can contribute your time, thoughtfulness, and leadership for approximately 3-4 hours per month and are interested in exploring this opportunity, please email Kavitha Subramaniam at subramaniamk@cdmsmith.com  or Stephanie Turkot at  Stephanie.turkot@gza.com.

    Sincerely,

    Kavitha Subramaniam and Stephanie Turkot

    NJSWEP Co-Chairs
