Pulaski, Virginia - A community of opportunity in Virginia's New River Valley
Community Projects

The Town of Pulaski, in partnership with many State and Federal Agencies, is involved in projects to improve our community. These projects are currently in progress:

NanoChemonics Cleanup

nanochemonicsThis Site is the location of the former NanoChemonics’ nanoparticle manufacturing facility. The Company ceased operations in July 2010. The Site contains a variety of potential threats of release of hazardous substances stemming from acid and caustic chemicals remaining within the manufacturing facility along with drums, totes, bags, and other containers of chemical substances; including, several laboratories. The Company worked to address the threats with its limited remaining resources by removing laboratory chemicals and conducting surveillance at the Site.

EPA Brownfields Program

EPA’s Brownfields Program empowers states, communities, and other stakeholders to work together to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields. A brownfield site is real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. Under multiple laws, EPA provides financial assistance to eligible applicants through four competitive grant programs: assessment grants, revolving loan fund grants, cleanup grants, and job training grants. Additionally, funding support is provided to state and tribal response programs through a separate mechanism.

Kersey Bottom and Case Knife Neighborhoods CDBG Grant

After the 2011 tornado that struck the Town of Pulaski it became apparent that disaster relief funds were not enough to improve the Kersey Bottom and Case Knife neighborhoods. As such, the Town applied for and was awarded a $1 million Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) in 2015.
