Generally, these response programs address the assessment, cleanup, and redevelopment of brownfields sites with actual or perceived contamination.

EPA will consider funding requests up to a maximum of $1.0 million per state or tribe for FY2015.
Matching Funds
To be eligible, a state or tribe must demonstrate that its response program includes, or is taking reasonable steps to include, the four elements of a response program described in Section IV of this guidance; or be a party to a voluntary response program memorandum of agreement (VRP MOA) with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and maintain and make available to the public a record of sites at which response actions have been completed in the previous year and are planned to be addressed in the upcoming year.
