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.

Cleanup Grant

$200,000 for hazardous substances

EPA has selected the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes for a brownfields cleanup grant. Hazardous substances grant funds will be used to clean up the Old Poplar Airport site located at 128 Airport Road in the City of Poplar. Grant funds also will be used to oversee the cleanup, support community outreach activities, and monitor institutional controls. The former airport was used for crop dusting operations and is contaminated with pesticides and metals.
