Grants Help Townships Assess, Clean Up Brownfields

Monday October 16th, 2017
Townships that have sites contaminated by petroleum and hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants, including hazardous substances co-mingled with petroleum, may apply for grants from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to assess and clean up the sites. The deadline for applications is November 16.
 
Two categories of brownfields funding are available:
 
• Assessment grants provide funds to inventory, characterize, assess, and conduct planning (including cleanup planning) and encourage community involvement in brownfield sites.
 
• Cleanup grants provide funds to clean up a specific brownfield site owned by the applicant.
 
Guidelines for each funding category are available here.
