This is in addition to screening level information available through EJ mapping tools from California and other states as well as EPA.

New Money for Brownfields and Environmental Justice

“EPA’s Office of Brownfields and Land Revitalization is providing $6.9 million in supplemental funding for 25 current successful Brownfields Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) grantees. The RLF supplemental funds are being provided to communities that have demonstrated success in using their Revolving Loan program to clean up and redevelop brownfield sites. The funds will be used to continue their progress in reusing vacant and abandoned properties and turning them into community assets such as housing, recreation and open space, health facilities, social services,¬†and commerce opportunities.”

These additional funds follow on the substantial funding USEPA is providing for environmental justice communities impacted by covid-19.

TikTok Adds More Analytics

TikTok (Beijing-based ByteDance’s hot video application) is introducing some new analytics and reporting features for their invitation-only Creator Marketplace.  It seems mostly the usual analytics for campaign view/like/share/CPV/CPE and it will offer the option of analyzing the impact of influencers.  https://bit.ly/2vPmtts

At the same time TikTok is under a National Security review, it’s been banned from government-issued devices by the US Army.   Legislation was introduced in Congress last week to prohibit Tik Tok from all government devices.

What do you think?  Too little to late? Too much risk for too little reward?
