2- Brownfields Assistance
Many communities in Wyoming have properties that are abandoned or underutilized because of known or suspected environmental contamination. These properties, known as “brownfields,” may require cleanup before they are safe for reuse or redevelopment. The DEQ established the Brownfields Assistance (BA) program to help local governments investigate, cleanup, and reuse brownfield properties.
Wyoming’s BA program can provide technical assistance to brownfield sites through:
- Providing assistance in securing Targeted Brownfields Assistance grants through E.P.A.
- Providing assistance and support letters when applying for E.P.A. Assessment, Cleanup, and Revolving Loan Fund grant applications
- Providing community outreach, and identifying potential grant opportunities

We're looking for communities to participate in a Coalition Assessment Grant for the upcoming 2020-2021 grant cycle. If you think there are brownfields in your community that may benefit from assessment grant funding, please get in touch. A brochure on the assessment grant process is available for download below.
