Review Eligibility Criteria

Environmental Services administers brownfield grants from the Environmental Protection Agency.

These grants allow us to provide financial assistance to eligible property owners who are concerned about possible contamination on their land. There are three criteria for eligibility: 

  1. The current property owner cannot be responsible for the contamination.
  2. The project must demonstrate financial need for funding.
  3. The proposed project must demonstrate community benefit, such as new jobs, new goods/services/amenities, reduction of a health hazard, or returning a long-vacant site to reuse. 

Call or email our office if you have questions about eligibility.
