Purpose

This program provides grants to eligible agencies to capitalize a revolving loan fund that will provide loans and subgrants to eligible entities to carry out cleanup activities at brownfield sites contaminated with hazardous substances and/or petroleum.

A revolving loan fund grant recipient must use 50% or more of the awarded funds for loans, and grantees may not subgrant to themselves. Additional requirements are listed in the application instructions.

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 revolving loan fund grant, there are 2 other funding opportunities.

Eligible applicants include:

  • State, local, and tribal governments, with the exception of certain Alaskan tribes
