Overview of the EPA Brownfields Program

EPA's Brownfields Program empowers states, communities, and other stakeholders to work together to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfield sites. A brownfield site is real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. The Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act of 2002, as amended by the Brownfields Utilization, Investment and Local Development Act of 2018, was passed to help states and communities around the country clean up and revitalize brownfield sites. Under this law, EPA provides financial assistance to eligible applicants through five competitive grant programs: Multipurpose Grants, Assessment Grants, Revolving Loan Fund Grants, Cleanup Grants, and Job Training Grants. Additionally, funding support is provided to state and tribal response programs through a separate mechanism.

Cleanup Grant


EPA has selected the Enterprise Development Center of Erie County for a Brownfields Cleanup Grant that will be funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Grant funds will be used to clean up the Former Erie Modern Industries Site and Former Quin T Site located at 603-643 West 12th Street and 140 East 16th Street, in the City of Erie. The former Quin-T facility manufactured asbestos products, including roofing, building, and automotive materials from the mid-1800s until the early 2000s, and is contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and heavy metals. The EMI Site is a former iron foundry and manufacturing facility that also operated as an electronics parts facility until the early 2000s, and has been vacant since closure. It is contaminated with tetrachloroethene, trichloroethene, and PCBs. PCE has also been identified in groundwater. Grant funds also will be used to conduct community engagement activities.
