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.

Revolving Loan Fund Grant

$800,000

EPA has selected the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) for a Brownfields Revolving Loan Fund Grant. The grant will be used to capitalize a revolving loan fund from which NJEDA will provide loans and subgrants to support cleanup activities. Grant funds also will be used to market the revolving loan fund program. While the revolving loan fund program can be used throughout the State of New Jersey, it will target 12 Community Collaborative Initiative (CCI) communities that have high instances of brownfields, poverty, and health disparities, and need revitalization. The CCI assists communities by providing a dedicated state employee as an ombudsman to resolve complex obstacles to successful remediation and redevelopment of contaminated sites. All but one of the targeted CCI communities contain Qualified Opportunity Zones.
