EPA Area-Wide Planning Program
The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Brownfields Area Wide Planning Grant Program provides municipalities and community-based organizations (CBOs) with federal funds to develop an area-wide plan for the assessment, cleanup and redevelopment of areas with multiple brownfield sites. Awards can be up to $200,000.
EPA makes about 20 area-wide planning grants each year the agency makes awards under the program. Since the program’s inception, EPA has made one area wide planning grant award to a CBO in New York City.
The Brownfields Area Wide Planning Grant Program is part of the Partnership for Sustainable Communities, a collaboration between EPA and the federal Departments of Transportation (DOT) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Learn more about the Brownfields Area Wide Planning Grant Program
