EPA Divvies $2.2 Million Among Nine States for Brownfields Redevelopment

Nine state or local governments are receiving supplemental grants in sums ranging from $100,000 to $500,000 each from EPA to help return problem properties to productive use. Approximately $2.2 million total is being awarded to brownfields revolving loan funds grantees. Brownfields are sites where expansion, redevelopment, or reuse may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.

EPA's brownfields program provides funding to state, local, and tribal governments to make low interest loans and subgrants that fund cleanup activities at brownfields sites. Since 1997, grant recipients have executed 114 loans and awarded 13 subgrants to support brownfields cleanup totaling more than $53 million. The loan funds have leveraged more than $780 million in public and private cleanup and redevelopment investment.

The following state and local governments have been selected to receive the brownfields supplemental money:

  • California: Oakland ($165,000)
  • Connecticut: Bridgeport ($250,000)
  • Florida: Hillsborough County ($400,000)
  • Illinois: Rockford ($200,000)
  • Massachusetts: Worcester ($100,000)
  • Minnesota: Minnesota Dept. of Employment and Economic Development ($250,000)
  • New Hampshire: New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services ($150,000)
  • Oklahoma: Oklahoma City ($250,000)
  • Washington: Washington Dept. of Community, Trade and Economic Development ($500,000)
