US EPA To Award Superfund Redevelopment Grants


SAN FRANCISCO -- In an effort to return toxic waste sites to productive
use, the U.S. EPA is awarding 40 pilot projects nationally up to $100,000 each
in financial assistance and services under a new program being offered by the
Superfund Redevelopment Initiative.
 
Proposals must be submitted to the agency by March 10. Assistance could
include services such as a funded position for a federal agency expert,
facilitation services and other technical assistance.
 
To be eligible, the applicant must be a state, a political subdivision, or
a federally recognized tribe, and have a site within its jurisdiction that is
proposed or final on the National Priorities List of federal Superfund sites,
and where construction of the remedy is not yet complete. Local governments
that have sites within their jurisdictions that are not on the National
Priorities List of Superfund sites -- but at which significant cleanup work by
the EPA is planned -- may also be eligible if an EPA cleanup decision is
pending.
 
Selections for the pilots are expected to be announced in May. Copies of
the notice can be obtained electronically through EPA's web page at
http://www.epa.gov/superfund/programs/recycle/proposal.htm or by calling the
Superfund Redevelopment Hotline at 888-526-4321.
