Wisconsin gets $4 Million for Brownfield Cleanup

Local Wisconsin governments and tribes can apply for grants or loans to help clean up contaminated properties under the new $4 million federally funded "Ready for Reuse" program.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources runs the program for the Wisconsin Brownfields Coalition. The coalition received $4 million through a federal EPA grant, and will use the funds to clean up brownfield properties, which are abandoned properties where development is blocked by contamination. The Coalition is providing $1 million for cleanup of gas and oil contamination and $3 million for cleanup of sites with hazardous substances.

Applications and additional funding information are available on the Wisconsin DNR web site.
