On May 17, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) formally announced 240 grant award recipients nationwide. These recipients have been recommended to receive $62.5 million in federal grant funds to assess, cleanup and redevelop sites. These dollars are aimed at communities who wish to remove blighted conditions, improve health and safety, restore property values, and with time, create investment and an enhanced quality of life.
Perhaps most notable in this announcement, Michigan is the second highest recipient of grants this year, receiving $3.9 million. Florida is the nation's highest recipient of allocated grant dollars with $4.2 million. In all, nine Michigan communities have been recommended to receive these dollars. Envirologic Technologies, Inc. is proud to have worked closely with Marquette County on their successful assessment grant application.
