The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) invests more than $1.5 billion through EPA’s highly successful Brownfields Program and funds over 350 programs to support planning, construction, and operation of a variety of public infrastructure projects. This unprecedented investment in EPA’s Brownfields Program will transform countless lives and spur life-changing revitalization in communities large and small, urban and rural; all with the same desire to keep their neighborhoods healthy, sustainable and reflective of the people who call it home. With EPA’s funding and direct technical assistance, overburdened communities can begin to address the economic, social and environmental challenges caused by brownfields and reposition these properties for investment and revitalization.
