Brownfields are properties that may have hazardous substances, pollutants or contaminants present.  EPA’s Brownfields Program provides grants and technical assistance to communities, states, tribes and others to assess, safely clean up and sustainably reuse these contaminated properties. Cleaning up and reinvesting in brownfields protects human health and the environment, reduces blight, and takes development pressures off greenspaces and working lands. To learn more about EPA’s broader efforts to put previously contaminated properties back into productive use, read about our Land Revitalization Program.
