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 Grants

$600,000 for hazardous substances

EPA has selected the Tacoma Housing Authority for three brownfields cleanup grants. Hazardous substances grant funds will be used to clean up Hillside Terrace 1 and 2; Salishan Phases 1, 2, 3, 4, and 7; and Salishan Phases 5 and 6. All three sites have been in residential use for at least 60 years, and are contaminated from the production, use, and storage of methamphetamine. Grant funds also will be used to create a community involvement plan.
