Brownfield Cleanup Grants provide funding to carry out cleanup activities at brownfield sites. Funds may be used to address sites contaminated by petroleum and/or hazardous substances, pollutants, and other contaminants.

The goal of the Brownfield program is to clean up, develop, and reuse property that may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. Properties can be redeveloped for housing, industry, or public green spaces.

A critical part of EPA's Brownfield program is to ensure that residents living in communities historically affected by economic disinvestment, health disparities, and environmental contamination are able to benefit from brownfield redevelopment.

In addition to the Cleanup Grants, there are 3 other funding opportunities under the Brownfield program.


Eligible applicants include:

  • State, local, and tribal governments, with the exception of certain Alaskan tribes
  • General purpose units of local government
  • Land clearance authorities, or other quasi-governmental entities
  • Regional councils or redevelopment agencies
  • Government entities created by state legislature
  • Alaska Native Regional Corporations, Alaska Native Village Corporations, and Metlakatla Indian Communities
  • 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations
  • Limited liability corporations or partnerships in which all general partners are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations or limited liability corporations whose sole members are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations
