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 brownfields program is to ensure that residents living in communities historically affected by economic disinvestment, health disparities, and environmental contamination are able to benefit from brownfields redevelopment. In addition to the revolving loan fund grant, there are 2 other funding opportunities.


Eligible entities 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 council or redevelopment agencies
  • States or legislatures
