Independent remedial action grants

We offer grants to help local governments clean up contamination under the Voluntary Cleanup Program.

Every even-numbered year, we work with local governments to understand the 10-year cost of critical cleanup work in Washington. Their responses inform our biennial budget request to the Governor and Legislature. Our grant managers coordinate applications from local governments for grants and loans to receive funding every two years under an approved biennial budget.
