Area Communities Receive EPA Grants

Area Communities Receive EPA Grants”

A total of $54.3 million will be provided to Brownfields sites nationwide. "The EPA Brownfields program is a great example of Washington working with local communities to address pollution and to find new uses for long-abandoned sites". The opportunity to repurpose this property will result in a boost in our local economy and spur growth and private investments in our community.

"These grants will secure much needed environmental assessments at dozens of properties that have been targeted for redevelopment in eastern Montana", said EPA Regional Administrator Doug Benevento. "I'd like to thank the EPA for providing funding that helps put these valuable properties back into use". "Environmental assessments and cleanup planning are important first steps in the reuse and redevelopment of brownfield properties".

Lincolnton will also receive $300,000, with $150,000 to be used for hazardous substances and $150,000 for petroleum.

Honolulu's Brownfields grant will be used to conduct environmental assessments of properties along the future 20-mile Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transit rail corridor. Assessment activities will focus on the Larinco and Fairfield South neighborhoods, and the city's Downtown District.

"The Town of Wiscasset is excited to announce that the Town was selected as one of the ME communities for two clean up grants".

The list of the Fiscal Year 2018 applicants selected for funding can be found at https://www.epa.gov/brownfields/applicants-selected-fy18-brownfields-assessment-revolving-loan-fund-and-cleanup-grants.

According to the EPA, "Brownfields are defined as those properties whose expansion, redevelopment or reuse may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant or contaminant".

Six New Hampshire towns are getting $700,000 in federal grants to clean up contaminated industrial sites. Furthermore, another study found that property values of homes located near Brownfield sites that are cleaned up increased between 5 and 15 percent after cleanup.

In addition, communities can use Brownfields funding to leverage water infrastructure loans and other financial resources.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said it will award a $200,000 grant to the city of Meriden for site cleanup at the former Meriden-Wallingford Hospital. EPA's Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act program may also serve as a potential source of long-term, low-priced supplemental financing to fund Brownfields project development and implementation activities to address water quality aspects of Brownfields.
