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.

Cleanup Grants

$600,000 for hazardous substances

EPA has selected the Sierra Institute for Community and Environment for three brownfields cleanup grants. Hazardous substances grant funds will be used to clean up the Old Mill Roads and Boiler Area, the West Central Area, and the Northern Area of the Crescent Mills Former LP Mill Site located at 15690 Highway 89 in Crescent Mills. The site housed various sawmill operations until the mid-1980s, which resulted in the release of and contamination by arsenic, dioxins/furans, and other hazardous substances. The site has remained vacant since the sawmill closed. Grant funds for all three areas also will be used to support community engagement and outreach activities.
