Following the passage of the historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be making significant investments in the health, equity, and resilience of American communities. With unprecedented funding to support our national infrastructure, EPA will improve people’s health and safety, help create good-paying jobs, and increase climate resilience throughout the country.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law invests more than 1.5 billion through EPA’s highly successful Brownfields Program. This means that blighted and polluted sites in communities across America will be assessed, cleaned up and made available for safe reuse, spurring job creation and economic opportunity in areas that need it most. See below for the BIL Brownfields Factsheet that outlines high-level program messages on the first page and the draft/subject to change spending plan with timeline on the second.
