Each year the NYC Brownfield Partnership formally recognizes successful NYC brownfield clean-up and redevelopment projects at the Big Apple Brownfield Awards, an awards and networking event. Award-winning projects have had positive effects on the community and have demonstrated excellence in the following areas: Supportive and Affordable Housing, Brownfield Opportunity Area Connectivity, Collaboration, Community Outreach, Economic Development, Environmental Protection, Green Building, Innovation, Open Space, and Sustainable Remediation.
In addition to recognizing Brownfield projects, the Partnership also recognizes individuals who have made a significant impact on brownfield redevelopment in NYC through its Distinguished Service Award. Past winners of the Partnership’s Distinguished Service Awards include Executive Director and co-founder of New Partners for Community Revitalization, Jody Kass (2014), OER Deputy Director, Shaminder Chawla (2015), NYSDEC Director of Remedial Bureau B, Robert Cozzy (2015), and NYSDEC Chief of Superfund and Brownfield Cleanup, Jane H.
