April 6, 2020, 4:23 PM

The EPA is extending by two weeks, to April 22, its deadline for Brownfields Revolving Loan Fund applications due to the coronavirus. The EPA made an additional $5 million available in March.

  • The Environmental Protection Agency, which announced the deadline extension in the Federal Register Monday, is accepting funding applications from parties with existing revolving loan fund agreements.
  • Federal brownfields funding contributes to the redevelopment of underused properties that may be contaminated.
  • The Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act authorizes the EPA to make additional funds available in any year, taking the demand for funding into consideration.
