Brownfields team assists 19 communities in securing EPA brownfields grants in 2021

19 communities in Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia, were awarded more than $8 million in brownfields assessment, multipurpose, coalition, and cleanup grants from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Cardno’s national brownfields team supported these communities and has a high rate of success in securing grant funding.

  • in Arkansas: Chicot County

  • in Georgia: City of Albany and City of College Park
  • in Mississippi: City of Greenville
  • in Missouri: Howardville Community Betterment
  • in Oregon: City of Chiloquin and the South Central Oregon Economic Development District

Cardno’s brownfields grant writing team assisted each community with preparing and writing the grant applications, helping our clients to secure more than $8 million in funding. In addition to grant writing, Cardno can assist communities with all phases of the brownfields redevelopment process, including securing state grants and other incentives, planning, sustainability and environmental services, program management, and site redevelopment. See graphic on this page for the team’s success with EPA brownfields grants over the last five years.

The full list of EPA fiscal year 2021 award-winning communities is available in the EPA announcement.


“These grants provide a tremendous benefit to communities as they seek to improve and expand opportunities for all members of their communities,” said Carolyn Weaver, Grant Manager for Cardno’s Brownfields Practice. “Each award represents a significant path forward towards cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable communities.”
