EPA Brownfields funding can be used for landfill assessments (as long as the site is not 
otherwise excluded; for example a landfill that's on the NPL).  A few of the EPA pilots 
are already funding work on landfills (e.g., Cape Charles, Dallas).  The deadline for 
the first round of FY 98 pilots just passed; the deadline for the next round is March 
23rd.  As usual with the EPA Pilots, they are open to city, county, state, and tribal 
entities and offer up to $200,000 over a two year period.  In addition, you might want 
to check with Region 6 to see if there's any available targeted site assessment funds 
available for your project.
