FY21 Guidelines For Brownfields Cleanup Grants
The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), as amended by the Brownfields Utilization, Investment, and Local Development (BUILD) Act (P.L. 115-141), requires the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to publish guidance for grants to assess and clean up brownfield sites. EPA’s Brownfields Program provides funds to empower states, communities, tribes, and nonprofit organizations to prevent, inventory, assess, clean up, and reuse brownfield sites.
Cleanup Grants provide funding to carry out cleanup activities on brownfield sites owned by the applicant.
Applicants may not submit multiple applications under this solicitation.
