EPA Brownfields Area-Wide Assessment Grant
The City’s Brownfields Program has been awarded two US EPA Grant Brownfields Assessment Grants. The grant funds will be used to perform Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments and cleanup planning in Los Angeles area.
"Our parks are vital neighborhood assets, essential to our communities and the safety of those parks is paramount, especially for our children" said Councilmember Mitchell Englander. "While it took a long time to raise the $9 million necessary for the clean-up of Chatsworth Park South, it all started with funding from the Brownfields program for the initial testing."
