i Brownfields 2017 Assessment Grant Fact Sheet
/ Newark, 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
$100,000for petroleum
EPA has selected the City of Newark for two brownfields assessment
grants. Community-wide hazardous substances grant funds will be used
to conduct eight Phase I and five Phase II environmental site
assessments. Community-wide petroleum grant funds will be used to
conduct four Phase I and three Phase II environmental site assessments.
Grant funds of both types also will be used to maintain a brownfields
inventory, prepare four cleanup plans, and support community
involvement activities. Assessment activities will focus on the Union
Street Corridor and Census Tract 7590.
