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. The Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act of 2002, as amended by the Brownfields Utilization, Investment, and Local Development Act of 2018, was passed to help states and communities around the country clean up 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.

Revolving Loan Fund Grant

$690,000 for hazardous substances

$110,000 for petroleum

EPA has selected the Androscoggin Valley Council of Governments (AVCOG) for a brownfields revolving loan fund grant. The grant will be used to capitalize a revolving loan fund from which AVCOG will provide loans and subgrants to support cleanup activities for sites contaminated with hazardous substances and petroleum. Grant funds also will be used to prepare six community relations plans, six Analysis of Brownfields Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA) reports, and six state remedial action completion reports; hold 12 project status meetings; and conduct community outreach activities. RLF activities will focus on the Cities of Lewiston and Auburn, and the Towns of Rumford and Wilton.
