In May 2016, the East Central Brownfields Coalition received a $550,000 EPA Assessment grant to conduct Phase I and Phase II environmental assessments and limited clean-up planning for local governments and non-profits within the region. While the grant has a focus on Jackson and Clinton Counties, all communities within the five county region are eligible for services. If you believe you have a site that may qualify as a brownfield and would like to request assessment services under the grant, please complete the application below and return to: Nicole Turn, firstname.lastname@example.org . If you have multiple sites, please fill out a form for each. You may attach additional pages.
If you have a potential site but are unsure if it would qualify, please do not hesitate to contact Nicole at the email above or 563-690-5771.
Sites do not need to be owned by the municipality or non-profit to qualify and no local match is required for assessment services. Municipalities and non-profits may submit an application on behalf of a private owner where the redevelopment or reuse of the property is in the interest of the community. Public-private partnerships are encouraged.
