For Inclusion In A Brownfields Grant Application To EPA

EPA's Proposal Guidelines for Brownfields Assessment, Revolving Loan Fund, and Cleanup Grants require applicants to provide a letter from the appropriate state environmental authority (in Massachusetts, MassDEP) acknowledging the application.

For MassDEP to provide such a letter we request an email and/or letter from each applicant containing the following information:

1) What is the type of grant funding being requested?
(Assessment Grant, Revolving Loan Fund, and/or Cleanup Grant)

2) Is the grant for petroleum-only?  If so area-wide or site specific?

3) Brief description of project, including redevelopment information;

4) Site address and Release Tracking Number (RTN) for site (if applicable);

5) Other state and federal funding being leveraged;

6) Name, address and telephone number of the applicant;

7) Where to send the original signed letter (if not to the person who requested it)

The request for a state acknowledgement letter can be emailed or sent to:
