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.

Assessment Grant

$300,000 for hazardous substances

$300,000 for petroleum

EPA has selected the City of Corvallis for a brownfields assessment coalition grant. Community-wide hazardous substances and petroleum grant funds will be equally distributed to conduct a total of 20 Phase I and 10 Phase II environmental site assessments and prepare four site-specific cleanup or reuse plans. Grant funds also will be used to develop a prioritized GIS brownfields inventory database and area-wide planning documents for two focus areas within the project area, and to conduct public involvement activities. Assessment activities will focus on the Cities of Albany, Monroe, and Philomath, and Benton County, which all serve as coalition partners.
