This week the EPA announced that it is accepting proposals for Brownfield grants. Agencies may apply for the Brownfields Assessment, Cleanup, and Revolving Loan Fund programs. Grant money may go towards brownfields contaminated by petroleum, other contaminants and/or hazardous substances. The EPA also announced new guidelines for this proposal process, which may be found here. Note that applicants must now own the site at the time they submit the grant proposal, which is different from previous requirements.
The deadline for proposals is Oct. 16, 2009.
