Integrated planning grants

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 (IPGs) 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 property while integrating administrative processes and analysis of investments needed for post-cleanup redevelopment of a site.

Funding cycle

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.
