Description: A brownfield is a property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. It is estimated that there are more than 450,000 brownfields in the U.S. Cleaning up and reinvesting in these properties increases local tax bases, facilitates job growth, utilizes existing infrastructure, takes development pressures off of undeveloped, open land, and both improves and protects the environment. Brownfield grants continue to serve as the foundation of EPA’s Brownfields Program. These grants support revitalization efforts by funding environmental assessment, cleanup, and job training activities. Grants offered include:

Brownfields Assessment Grants

Brownfields Revolving Loan Fund Grant

Brownfields Cleanup Grants

Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training

Technical Assistance, Training, and Research Grants

State and Tribal Response Program Grants
