This guide updates the 2017 edition to aid in the cleanup and redevelopment of brownfields. Each federal agency or organization involved is summarized with respect to its mission and connection to brownfields. Each summary identifies relevant programs organized according to whether technical or financial assistance is available. Where applicable, a description is provided of eligibility requirements, availability, uses, and applications, as well as any restrictions on use or eligibility. "Snapshots" of brownfield projects that have successfully leveraged funding from these programs are included to illustrate how federal programs have stimulated brownfields cleanup and redevelopment around the country. The section on "Other Support for Brownfields Cleanup and Redevelopment" explains options for using federal tax incentives and bringing state and local partners into the funding mix. Tapping into these additional funding sources often can provide the additional resources that a brownfields project needs. EPA encourages stakeholders to think broadly about a brownfields project and plan early for its success by considering the many options available for technical and financial assistance. This guide provides a useful tool. A quick-reference table gives an overview of brownfields federal programs to help narrow the search for assistance.
