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 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.
$150,000 for hazardous substances
$150,000 for petroleum
EPA has selected the City of Greenville for two brownfields assessment grants. Community-wide hazardous substances grant funds will be used to conduct four Phase I and three Phase II environmental site assessments, and develop two cleanup plans. Community-wide petroleum grant funds will be used to conduct five Phase I and four Phase II environmental site assessments, and develop two cleanup plans. Grant funds of both types also will be used to conduct community outreach activities.
