Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA state, local agency, Indian tribe, nonprofit, community development entity, or land clearance authority for technical assistance, research, and training to facilitate brownfield revitalization. Funding is intended to clean up brownfield sites and restore them to healthy, economically vital sites for the surrounding communities.

A brownfield site is defined as real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of hazardous substances, pollutants, contaminants, controlled substances, petroleum or petroleum products, or is mine-scarred land.

A critical part of EPA’s Brownfields Program is to ensure that residents living in communities historically affected by economic disinvestment, health disparities, and environmental contamination have an opportunity to reap the benefits from brownfields redevelopment. EPA’s Brownfields Program has a rich history rooted in environmental justice and is committed to helping communities revitalize brownfield properties, mitigate potential health risks, and restore economic vitality. 

Eligible uses of grant funds include direct costs necessary to provide brownfields research and technical assistance identified in the approved workplan. This includes eligible programmatic costs necessary to perform your project, such as: costs for personnel, technical experts, materials, supplies, room rentals, travel, and transportation expenses.
