Brownfields

Frequently Asked Questions About Multipurpose, Assessment, RLF, and Cleanup Grants

EPA prepared these Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and answers to assist prospective applicants with preparing Brownfields Multipurpose, Assessment, Revolving Loan Fund (RLF), and Cleanup Grant proposals.

Current Brownfield Grant recipients may also benefit from FAQs that are related to general program policies and are not specific to a competition cycle. Recipients should note, however, that their cooperative agreement Terms and Conditions and the FAQs issued for the fiscal year they applied for Brownfields Grant funding supersede subsequent FAQs in the event of a conflict.

If the information in the FAQs differs from information in the statute, regulation, or the Guidelines, then the statute, regulation or the Guidelines will take precedence. The FAQs will be updated periodically as we continue to receive questions.
