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. The Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act of 2002, as amended by the Brownfields Utilization, Investment and Local Development Act of 2018, was passed to help states and communities around the country clean up and revitalize brownfield sites. Under this law, EPA provides financial assistance to eligible applicants through five competitive grant programs: Multipurpose Grants, Assessment Grants, Revolving Loan Fund Grants, Cleanup Grants, and Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training Grants. Additionally, funding support is provided to state and tribal response programs through a separate mechanism.

Assessment Grant

$300,000 for hazardous substances
$300,000 for petroleum

EPA has selected the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council (TCRPC) for a Brownfields Assessment Coalition Grant. Community-wide hazardous substances and petroleum grant funds will be used to conduct 30 Phase I and 10 Phase II environmental site assessments, starting with priority sites. Grant funds also will be used to develop 10 cleanup plans and five site reuse assessments, create a GIS-based site inventory, and conduct community outreach activities. Assessment activities will focus on priority sites in the community redevelopment areas of the cities of Fort Pierce, Rio, and Port Salerno; and in the Northwest Progresso Flagler Heights neighborhood of the City of Fort Lauderdale. Coalition partners are the South Florida Regional Planning Council and Miami Waterkeeper.
