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.

Assessment Grant

$300,000 for hazardous substances

$200,000 for petroleum

EPA has selected Henry County for a brownfields assessment coalition grant. Community-wide hazardous substances grant funds will be used to perform up to six Phase I and up to eight Phase II environmental site assessments, and prepare up to two cleanup plans. Community-wide petroleum grant funds will be used to perform five Phase I and seven Phase II environmental site assessments, and prepare up to two cleanup plans. Grant funds of both types also will be used to maintain the coalition's brownfields inventory and conduct community outreach activities. Coalition partners are the City of New Castle and the Town of Middletown.
