Brownfield Locations

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. In 2002, the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act was passed to help states and communities around the country cleanup 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 Grants

EPA has selected the City of Salem for two brownfield assessment grants. Community-wide hazardous substances grant funds will be used to perform six Phase I and four Phase II environmental site assessments and conduct cleanup planning at one site. Petroleum grant funds will be used to perform seven Phase I and six Phase II environmental site assessments and conduct cleanup planning at two sites with potential petroleum contamination. Grant funds of both types also will be used for community and stakeholder outreach activities.
