Waste Site Cleanup & Reuse in New England
Cleanup Grant Program
Cleanup Grants provide funding for an eligible recipient to carry out cleanup activities at brownfields sites that they own.
An eligible entity may apply for up to $200,000 per site to address sites contaminated by petroleum and hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants (including hazardous substances co-mingled with petroleum).
Cleanup grants require a 20% cost share, which may be in the form of a contribution of money, labor, material, or services, and must be for eligible costs. A cleanup grant recipient may request a waiver of the 20% cost share based on hardship.
An eligible entity must own the site for which it is requesting funding in order to qualify.
Sites must have a Phase I environmental assessment completed and a Phase II environmental assessment underway or completed.
The performance period of these grants is 3 years.
The recipients of this program are selected through a national competition.
