CA Equitable Community Revitalization Grant

Communities throughout California are burdened by idled lands that are expensive to investigate, clean up, and reuse. Recognizing the potential to reuse these properties, California has created the Equitable Community Revitalization Grant (ECRG) program, allocating more than $200 million in grant funds for local governments, qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, and Tribes for inventory, investigation, and cleanup activities to address historic environmental injustices.

If you’re here, it’s probably because you have interest in, or are in the process of applying for, the ECRG program through the California Department of Toxic Substance Control’s (DTSC) Office of Brownfields. Welcome! We’re here to help!
