Linn Benton Brownfields Coalition Grant –

The Environmental Projection Agency (EPA) selected seven Oregon projects to receive funding in FY23. Oregon Cascades West Council of Governments (OCWCOG) was the recipient of a $1 million Coalition Grant. This grant will support environmental assessments, clean-up plans, site reuse plans, a public involvement plan, and a variety of community engagement activities. The primary objective of this project is to identify and characterize contamination at key sites, and work with property owners to position them for redevelopment aligned with community needs. The grant period is October 1, 2023 – September 30, 2027.

What is a Brownfield? Brownfields are real property, the expansion, development or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.
