Subject: Brownfields Pilot Grant Application Deadline is March 23, 1998
This is a reminder that the deadline for new applications
for EPA's 1998 Brownfields Assessment Demonstration Pilots
is March 23, 1998.

Original notice posted in Federal Register: October 9, 1997
(Volume 62, Number 196)] [Notices]  [Page 52720-52721]

As a part of the Environmental Protection Agency's
(EPA) Brownfields Economic Redevelopment Initiative,
the Brownfields Assessment Demonstration Pilots, which
are each funded up to $200,000 over two years, are
designed to empower States, communities, Tribes, and
other stakeholders in economic redevelopment to work
together in a timely manner to prevent, assess, safely
clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields.
Brownfields Assessment Demonstration Pilots test
redevelopment models, direct special efforts toward
removing regulatory barriers without sacrificing
protectiveness, and facilitate coordinated
environmental assessments and cleanup efforts at the
federal, state, tribal and local levels. The funds
granted are used to generate interest by pulling
together community groups, investors, lenders,
developers and other affected parties to address the
issue of cleaning up sites contaminated with
hazardous substances and returning them to appropriate
productive use. To date, the Agency has funded 121
Brownfields Assessment Demonstration Pilots.  EPA
expects to select approximately 100 additional
Pilots in 1998.

The Brownfields Assessment Demonstration Pilots are
administered on a competitive basis. To ensure a
fair selection process, evaluation panels consisting
of EPA Regional and Headquarters staff and other
federal agency representatives will assess how well
the proposals meet the selection criteria outlined in
the revised application booklet, "The Brownfields
Economic Redevelopment Initiative: Proposal Guidelines
for Brownfields Assessment Demonstration Pilots."
