Project Summary & Goals
Underutilized, potentially contaminated properties are known as “brownfields.” The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Brownfields Program is designed to empower communities to work together to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields. The City of Pittsburg was awarded EPA funding for Community-wide Assessment in 2017. Through this grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the city will fund property evaluations, community engagement, and redevelopment planning.
Private property owners can benefit from this funding to support their redevelopment goals. The city’s Future Build program also receives funding from EPA to support training in environmental management and cleanup.
