Brownfields Grants

EPA Brownfields Grant Competition

Each year, EPA provides direct funding for brownfields assessment, cleanup, revolving loans, and environmental job training.

  • Assessment grants provide funding for a grant recipient to inventory, characterize, assess, and conduct planning and community involvement related to brownfields sites. Assessment grants are typically capped at $200,000 and require no matching funds.
  • Cleanup grants provide funding for a grant recipient to clean up and revitalize eligible brownfields properties. Cleanup grants are capped at $200,000 and require a 20% match in funds or in-kind services.
  • Environmental workforce development and job training grants provide funding to eligible entities, including nonprofit organizations, to recruit, train, and place predominantly low-income and minority, unemployed and underemployed residents of solid and hazardous waste-impacted communities with the skills needed to secure full-time, sustainable employment in the environmental field and in the assessment and cleanup work taking place in their communities.

Brownfields program staff are available to assist with preparing and reviewing grant proposals.

Previous recipients of brownfields grants in Idaho include the Moscow Brownfields Coalition (City of Moscow, Moscow Urban Renewal Agency, and Latah County), the City of Caldwell, Idaho Department of Parks & Recreation, Capital City Development Corporation, Reuse Idaho Brownfields Coalition, Salmon Urban Renewal Agency, and DEQ.
