The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is now accepting applications for FY21 Brownfields Multipurpose, Assessment & Cleanup (MAC) Grants. All applications are due October 28, 2020.
Grants awarded by the EPA’s Brownfield Program provide communities across Wisconsin and the country with an opportunity to transform contaminated sites into community assets that attract jobs and achieve broader economic development outcomes while taking advantage of existing infrastructure. In many cases, brownfields grants have been shown to not only increase local tax revenue, but to also have a positive impact on residential property values.
For grant guidelines and application resources, visit the FY21 Brownfields Multipurpose, Assessment, and Cleanup Grant Resource web page. (A recorded copy of a September 14 national webinar to review and address questions will soon be available at the preceding link).
Interested to learn more about this year’s brownfields MAC grants and application process? The EPA’s Region 5 partners at Kansas State University / Technical Assistance for Brownfields program will hold a webinar on Wednesday, September 23 at 10:00 (CST).
This webinar is offered via Microsoft Teams. You can access the full webinar experience at Join Microsoft Teams Meeting or call in for audio at (312) 667-5632 (conference ID 269 438 006#).
Webinar slides will be made available after the event. The webinar will be recorded with copies of the recording available on request.
