Sustainability: Brownfield Grants
June 9, 2015
The United States Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $1.2 million in brownfield grants to three Arizona communities. The three are among 147 communities nationwide receiving funding to assess and clean up historically contaminated properties, known as brownfields, for reuse and development. Phoenix will get $400,000, and will use the money to target five industrial areas for environmental assessments. Rosanne Albright, program manager of the Phoenix Brownfields Program, will tell us more.
