U.S. EPA Will Release RFP for Brownfield Assessment and Cleanup Funding this Fall

September 2, 2016
The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Brownfields program is expecting the release of their annual request for proposals for brownfields assessment and cleanup funding in September/October 2016 with applications due 60-75 days after the release.
 
These grants support property redevelopment and economic revitalization. Funds can be used to develop a brownfields inventory, conduct community outreach, perform environmental site assessments and clean up brownfield properties.
 
Cities that may have sites are encouraged to start early and contact EPA, engage interested stakeholders, and begin preparing the application. Additional information on the brownfields grant program can be found on EPA’s website.
 
For practical advice and hands-on technical assistance, feel free to contact members of the CALED Brownfields & Land Revitalization Committee.
