i Brownfields 2016 Assessment Grant Fact Sheet
/ Dayton, OH
EPA Brownfields Program
EPA's Brownfields Program empowers states, communities,
and other stakeholders to work together to prevent, assess,
safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields. A
brownfield site is real property, the expansion, redevelopment,
or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or
potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or
contaminant. In 2002, the Small Business Liability Relief and
Brownfields Revitalization Act was passed to help states and
communities around the country cleanup and revitalize
brownfields sites. Under this law, EPA provides financial
assistance to eligible applicants through four competitive grant
programs: assessment grants, revolving loan fund grants,
cleanup grants, and job training grants. Additionally, funding
support is provided to state and tribal response programs
through a separate mechanism.
Assessment Grants
$200,000for hazardous substances
$200,000for petroleum
EPA has selected the City of Dayton for two brownfields assessment
grants. Community-wide hazardous substances and petroleum grant
funds will be used to conduct 14 Phase I and 10 Phase II environmental
site assessments. Grant funds also will be used to inventory and
prioritize brownfields, develop four risk assessments and six cleanup
plans, and conduct community outreach activities.
