The City of Huntington has been selected to receive an $800,000 brownfields environmental revolving loan fund grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The grant will support cleanup activities for sites contaminated with hazardous substances and petroleum. It will focus on vacant or abandoned sites that will be recycled to enhance economic development opportunities in Huntington.
“The award of this brownfields grant is a continuation of Huntington’s partnership with the U.S. EPA,” Mayor Steve Williams said. “It provides us an additional tool toward realizing our goal of revitalizing our city and transforming the economy of the region.”
Huntington was one of 144 communities that the EPA selected for brownfields environmental Assessment, Revolving Loan Fund, and Cleanup grants. The 221 grants totaling $54.3 million will provide communities with funding to assess, clean up and redevelop underutilized properties while protecting public health and the environment.
