DTSC’s Equitable Communities Revitalization Grant (ECRG) launches this week. 

Prepared brownfield site flattened and cleared ready for new build construction.

The Department of Toxic Substances Control’s Office of Brownfields’ Equitable Communities Revitalization Grant (ECRG) is launching next week! This grant program will provide grants to incentivize cleanup and investment in disadvantaged areas of California and set a new path for land use that will have immediate and lasting benefits, such as recreational uses (parks and other green spaces), commercial enterprises, and housing. Grants up to $7 million per application are available. Sign up for the mailing list here to receive updates about the grant program.
