Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, states, communities, and tribes for the capitalization of loan funds related to the cleanup of brownfields. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. Funding is intended to support revolving loan programs that provide subgrants and loans to qualified entities to carry out cleanup activities at sites contaminated with hazardous substances and/or petroleum.
Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) Grants provide funding to a grant recipient to capitalize an RLF program. RLF programs provide loans and subgrants to eligible entities to carry out cleanup activities at brownfield sites contaminated with hazardous substances and/or petroleum. Site eligibility will be determined by EPA after grant award and prior to expending grant funds at any site. Sites where hazardous substances and petroleum contamination are distinguishable must meet eligibility requirements for both contaminants.
Revolving loan funds are used to provide no-interest or low-interest loans for eligible brownfield cleanups, subgrants for cleanups, and other eligible programmatic costs necessary to manage the RLF. An RLF Grant recipient must use 50% or more of the total award amount (i.e., EPA funds for the RLF Grant plus the recipient’s cost share) to provide loans for the cleanup of eligible brownfield sites and associated eligible programmatic capability. The remaining EPA funding and associated cost share may be used for eligible programmatic costs, including issuing and managing subgrants to clean up eligible brownfield sites.
