We have partnered with Smart Growth America, the Center for Creative Land Recycling and the NADO Research Foundation to provide guidance and analysis, offer a set of tools, and build a supportive community of practice to better position the municipalities and regions bracing for nuclear plant closure.

We held a successful webinar on November 12, 2020 at 2 p.m. ET to introduce to the team, describe the kind of support that is available, and discuss various aspects of this new assistance program.
