Access Federal Government Grants Online

Grants.gov allows organizations to electronically find and apply for competitive grant opportunities from all federal grant-making agencies. Grants.gov is THE single access point for over 900 grant programs offered by the 26 federal grant-making agencies.

All Appropriate Inquiry

The Small Business Liability Relief and Revitalization Act (the Brownfields Law) clarifies CERCLA liability provisions for certain landowners and potential property owners. The Brownfields Law provides liability protections for certain property owners, if the property owners comply with certain provisions, including conducting all appropriate inquiry into present and past uses of the property and the potential presence of environmental contamination on the property. The Brownfields Law amends Section 101(35)(B) of CERCLA to include an interim standard for conducting all appropriate inquiry and requires EPA to promulgate regulations that establish federal standards and practices for conducting all appropriate inquiry.


Kansas State University (KSU) has developed a software tool called "TAB EZ" that can assist communities who are applying for assessment and cleanup grants under EPA's Fiscal Year 2009 Brownfields Assessment, Revolving Loan Fund and Cleanup (ARC) grant competition. TAB EZ was developed by KSU and CABEM Technologies, Inc., as a public service and is available free of charge to anyone nationwide. More information Exit EPA Click for Disclaimer
