Integrated planning grants

We provide grant funding to local governments that own or are considering acquisition, cleanup, and adaptive reuse of a brownfield property or multiple brownfield properties within a defined area. Adaptive reuse of a brownfield site can be a complicated undertaking that requires coordinated analysis of environmental conditions, site planning, and financial issues. Integrated planning grants can support local government’s efforts in conducting the key first steps in the cleanup and redevelopment process by helping pay for an integrated project plan that addresses not only cleanup, but also administrative processes and investments needed for post-cleanup redevelopment of a site.

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