Toxics Cleanup Program Funding Opportunities:

Site Hazard Assessment Grants

These grants provide funding to local governments that conduct initial investigations and hazard assessments of contaminated sites on behalf of Ecology. The results of these studies are used by Ecology to list and rank sites. The 2013 legislation does not impact these grants.


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 $3 million for Site Hazard Assessment Grants. Additional funds may become available during the biennium.
