The U.S. EPA Brownfield Program provides direct funding for brownfield assessment, cleanup, revolving loans, and environmental jobs training through competitive grants. Each year, brownfield grant opportunities are announced when EPA releases the Brownfield Grant solicitations (commonly referred to as the "guidelines"). The solicitations for grant propopsals are typically released in the fall and applicants have approximately 60 days to prepare and submit proposals.
To help entities applying for these federal grants, the Kentucky Brownfield Program offers workshops, provides grant writing assistance, reviews draft proposals, and writes letters of support. A compiled list of resources to help you navigate the federal application process and write a successful grant proposal is provided below.
