U.S. EPA Brownfields Grant Applications Available

$92.9 Million to Distribute October 15 Deadline

U.S. EPA just released guidance and applications for its Brownfields assessment, cleanup and revolving loan fund (RLF) grant programs. U.S. EPA estimates that it will have $92.9 million to distribute and anticipates awarding 185 assessment grants for $52.4 million, 147 cleanup grants for $29.5 million, and 11 revolving loan fund grants nationwide for $11 million. The application deadline is October 15, 2010.

Hull & Associates, Inc. provided this information.  They claim to have significant experience with preparing and implementing these grants. According to the company, Hull helped prepare 27 successful U.S. EPA brownfields assessment, cleanup and RLF grant applications worth $6.9 million and is currently implementing a number of these grants in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Pennsylvania. They indicate that they would be pleased to talk with any organization to consider their brownfield challenges and help determine whether a U.S. EPA grant could be useful to address those challenges.  Hull will provide pro bono grant writing consultation for this round of U.S. EPA grant applications if they are contacted by September 15.

U.S. EPA Region 5 is holding webinars to discuss these grants and the application components on September 7 & 9.
