Alternate Title: Environmental Protection Agency Announces $10.3 Million in New Grants for Contaminated Land Cleanup, Economic Development in Michigan [May 7, 2009]

On May 7, 2009, in a White House press release, "U.S. Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] Administrator Lisa P. Jackson announced … [that] the availability of an estimated $10.3 million in grants bolstered by funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to help communities in Michigan clean up sites known as 'brownfields' which may be contaminated by hazardous chemicals or pollutants. Michigan is the top recipient of these funds, receiving more total grant money than any other state in this new announcement. The grants, which include $2.5 million from the Recovery Act and $7.8 million from the EPA brownfields general program funding, will help revitalize former industrial and commercial sites, turning them from problem properties to productive business and community institutions."
