Waste Site Cleanup & Reuse in New England

Cleanup Grant Program

Cleanup Grants provide funding for an eligible recipient to carry out cleanup activities at brownfields sites that they own.

  • An eligible entity may apply for up to $200,000 per site to address sites contaminated by petroleum and hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants (including hazardous substances co-mingled with petroleum).

  • Cleanup grants require a 20% cost share, which may be in the form of a contribution of money, labor, material, or services, and must be for eligible costs. A cleanup grant recipient may request a waiver of the 20% cost share based on hardship.

  • An eligible entity must own the site for which it is requesting funding in order to qualify.

  • Sites must have a Phase I environmental assessment completed and a Phase II environmental assessment underway or completed.

  • The performance period of these grants is 3 years.

  • The recipients of this program are selected through a national competition.
