Integrated planning grants

Adaptive reuse of a brownfield site can be a complicated undertaking that requires coordinated analysis of environmental conditions, site planning, and financial issues. We provide two different types of Integrated Planning Grants (IPGs) – Standard and Affordable Housing. Both grants support efforts in conducting the key first steps in the cleanup and redevelopment process by helping to create an integrated project plan. The IPG reduces uncertainty about contamination at a certain property while integrating administrative processes and analysis of investments needed for post-cleanup redevelopment of a site.

Funding cycle

  • Amount of funding available: $1,000,000 for 2019-2021 Biennium for Standard IPGs.

Start date: Sep 25, 2019
End date: Jun 30, 2021

We now have limited Integrated Planning Grant (IPG) funding available. Some funding may be available for affordable housing related cleanup projects. For questions about a potential brownfield redevelopment project and if it qualifies for an IPG, contact one of Ecology’s Integrated Planning Grant Coordinators listed below for your region.

Funding is available for the following entities:

Standard IPGs: Available to local governments that own or are considering acquisition, cleanup, and redevelopment of a brownfield property or multiple brownfield properties.
 
Affordable Housing IPGs: Available to all persons, including both public and private developers, looking to develop a Brownfield for affordable housing after cleanup.

Cultural resource review

For ground-disturbing remedial actions to be eligible for grant funding, Ecology or another state or federal agency must consult with the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation and affected Tribes before cleanup actions begin. Our cultural resource review webpage has more details about this requirement.
