EPA Brownfields Program

EPA's Brownfields Program empowers states, communities, and other stakeholders to work together to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields. A brownfield site is real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. In 2002, the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act was passed to help states and communities around the country cleanup and revitalize brownfields sites. Under this law, EPA provides financial assistance to eligible applicants through four competitive grant programs: assessment grants, revolving loan fund grants, cleanup grants, and job training grants. Additionally, funding support is provided to state and tribal response programs through a separate mechanism.

Assessment Grants

$200,000 for hazardous substances

$200,000 for petroleum

EPA has selected the City of Indianapolis for two brownfields assessment grants. Community-wide hazardous substances grant funds will be used to prioritize sites and perform 12 Phase I and three Phase II environmental site assessments. Grant funds also will be used to conduct area-wide planning and community outreach activities. Petroleum grant funds will be used to conduct the same activities at sites with potential petroleum contamination.

Cleanup Grant

$200,000 for hazardous substances

EPA has selected the City of Indianapolis for a brownfields cleanup grant. Hazardous substances grant funds will be used to clean up the former National Malleable Castings Company Works site at 2732 W. Michigan Street. The 2.9-acre site was an iron works foundry from 1875 until 1962, and has been vacant since. It is contaminated with PCBs and arsenic. Grant funds also will be used to implement institutional controls and conduct community outreach activities.
