The grants provide funding to local governments that investigate and clean up hazardous waste sites under the supervision of Ecology or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under an order or decree.
The loans supplement local government funding and funding from other sources to meet the match requirements for oversight remedial action grants. Loans are considered on a case-by-case basis based on the financial need of the local government and its ability to pay over a period of time.
The 2013 legislation does not impact these grants or loans. However, the legislation does prioritize funding for certain types of large, multi-biennial projects (extended grant agreements).
|Current Funding Cycle|
|For the 2013-2015 fiscal biennium, the Legislature appropriated $62,537,000 for the Remedial Action Grants and Loans Program. Of this amount, Ecology allocated $56,043,426 for Oversight Remedial Action Grants and Loans. Additional funds may become available during the biennium.
