Project Title & Description
Carrie Furnace Redevelopment Project
This project aims to reinvigorate environmental justice in the communities surrounding the Carrie Furnace brownfield site in western Pennsylvania. The Carrie Furnace site is currently undergoing site engineering in preparation for major redevelopment. While this progress is important to the future of those communities, the grant also intends to address the current environmental challenges facing these residents. The project aims to educate residents about household exposure to toxins, such as lead or asbestos. Residents will also increase their awareness of measures to remediate or manage lead or asbestos hazards and mitigate the effects of air pollution.
