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 Grant

$450,275 for hazardous substances

$149,725 for petroleum

EPA has selected the City of Glens Falls for a brownfields assessment coalition grant. Community-wide hazardous substances and petroleum grant funds will be used to perform 50 Phase I and eight Phase II environmental site assessments. Grant funds also will be used to conduct community involvement activities and cleanup planning for 12 sites. The project targets properties located along a 60-mile stretch of the upper Hudson River. Coalition partners are the Towns of Chester, Corinth, and Hadley, and the Villages of Hudson Falls, South Glens Falls, and Whitehall.
