As a service to members of the RBP, NVCOG regularly applies for state and federal grants to offer assessment and cleanup grants and loans for brownfields sites in our region. Over the past decade, NVCOG has managed more than $12 million in federal brownfields funding awarded and administered by EPA. There are typically two EPA resources available through NVCOG. See EPA’s website to learn more about the types of brownfield funding.

EPA Assessment Grants

This funding may be used to develop environmental information for a site in order to better understand existing conditions. Data is used to develop cleanup strategies with the ultimate goal of remediation and reuse. When assessment funding is available, we offer grants for developing inventories of brownfield sites, prioritizing sites, conducting community involvement activities, planning, Phase I and II site assessments, developing site-specific cleanup plans and reuse plans related to brownfield sites.

Assessment Grant funds cannot be used to conduct cleanup activities. For more information on our Assessment Program, click below.

EPA Revolving Loan Fund (RLF)

RLF funds are used for the clean up phase of brownfield remediation, after a brownfield site has been properly assessed and conditions of the site are known. Due to the heavier administrative burdens and funding commitments inherent in operating a RLF program, NVCOG has chosen to provide these funds to benefit of all Regional Brownfields Partnership eligible communities. The ongoing funding from EPA’s RLF program has been critical to the success of brownfield projects throughout the Naugatuck Valley Corridor, private and public alike.

Our current Revolving Loan Fund program allows NVCOG to issue sub-award grants to municipalities, economic development organizations, and non-profits while making low-interest loans available to municipalities, non-profits and private developers. These funds may be used for clean-up activities on eligible sites only. RLF funding thus fills a critical gap in private development of brownfield sites, where reuse and redevelopment would not occur but for the RLF loan or grant.

Under federal law, parties responsible for the contamination are not eligible for cleanup funding. NVCOG cannot loan or subgrant funds that will be used to pay for cleanup activities at a site for which a borrower or subgrantee is potentially liable under CERCLA § 107.

Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD)

In addition to grants offered by EPA, Connecticut offers brownfield funding assistance through the Connecticut DECD Office of Brownfield Remediation and Redevelopment Municipal Grant Program. DECD grants provide funding for a range of cleanup activities and associated costs, including but not limited to abatement, assessment, demolition, and remediation. NVCOG may apply to DECD grant funding rounds on behalf of a municipality or assist in the development of a grant completed by the municipality. These funds have aided dozens of projects throughout the region
