FY20 Guidelines For Brownfields Assessment Grants

EPA-OLEM-OBLR-19-05 - Closing Date: December 3, 2019 

The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), as amended by the Brownfields Utilization, Investment, and Local Development (BUILD) Act (P.L. 115-141), requires the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to publish guidance for grants to assess and clean up brownfield sites. EPA’s Brownfields Program provides funds to empower states, communities, tribes, and nonprofit organizations to prevent, inventory, assess, clean up, and reuse brownfield sites. This guidance provides information on applying for Assessment Grants. Entities that were awarded (or have been selected by EPA for an award for) a Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19) Multipurpose Grant (EPA-OLEM-OBLR-18-08) may not apply for an FY20 Assessment Grant under this solicitation.
