“EPA’s Office of Brownfields and Land Revitalization is providing $6.9 million in supplemental funding for 25 current successful Brownfields Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) grantees. The RLF supplemental funds are being provided to communities that have demonstrated success in using their Revolving Loan program to clean up and redevelop brownfield sites. The funds will be used to continue their progress in reusing vacant and abandoned properties and turning them into community assets such as housing, recreation and open space, health facilities, social services, and commerce opportunities.”
