The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) Office of Brownfields is pleased to announce that Round 2 of the Equitable Community Revitalization Grant (ECRG) will open this summer. An estimated $85 million will be available to fund the assessment, investigation, and cleanup of contaminated sites in California communities for beneficial reuse. Public entities, nonprofits, and Tribes are eligible to apply for funds to incentivize cleanup and investment in California’s most disadvantaged areas. Learn more about the Equitable Community Revitalization Grant, tools and resources.
Over the past few months, DTSC’s Office of Brownfields has been coordinating and collaborating with stakeholders to enhance ECRG in an effort to provide the highest and best service to the vulnerable communities that we serve. As we continue to deepen our environmental justice lens, we are launching a feedback period. Our goal is to use virtual and in-person gatherings to better understand your concerns and aspirations, and then consider how we can reflect them in the ECRG.
