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.
$200,000 for hazardous substances
EPA has selected the Coeur d'Alene Tribal Housing Authority for a brownfields cleanup grant. Hazardous substances grant funds will be used to clean up six residential properties on the Coeur d'Alene Tribal Reservation. Contamination resulted from the production or use of methamphetamine within the six units.
