U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Regional Administrator Susan Hedman today announced a $1 million Brownfield Revolving Loan Fund grant to clean up contaminated properties in Milwaukee to prepare the sites for reuse. Hedman was joined by U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore and Mayor Tom Barrett for the announcement at a brownfield site in the Park East Corridor, where a prior EPA grant was used for cleanup work.
“This EPA brownfield grant is a solid investment in the future of Milwaukee that will help transform contaminated sites into redevelopment opportunities,” said Hedman. “EPA’s new grant will help expand Milwaukee’s successful brownfield redevelopment program.”
The Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee will use EPA’s new grant to provide loans to clean up contaminated sites throughout the city.
