Grants and funding options are available for various aspects of many of the cleanup programs. For example, some grants encourage community involvement in the cleanup process, some support training related to cleanups, and some help fund the assessment, cleanup, or redevelopment of a site.

Depending on the type of site and the program managing site cleanup, contaminated and potentially contaminated sites and properties are eligible for different types of funding. Funding may be available from EPA, states, and other federal agencies and departments.

Individual state cleanup programs may be able to provide information about grants and other funding sources that can help to leverage funding at contaminated and formerly contaminated properties. Some additional state funding resources include:
