In 2018, a Coalition led by the City of Stockton and supported by SJCOG and Stockton Successor Agency was awarded a $600,000 Brownfield Assessment Grant by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The grant will fund environmental site assessment (ESA), regulated building materials (RBM) survey, site cleanup/reuse planning, and related activities at publicly- and privately-owned brownfield sites. Funding is available through September 2021.
The program’s vision is to clean up idle properties around the City, especially in and around downtown, the waterfront, and along transit routes. These revitalization efforts are intended to provide benefits to the community including, creating jobs, encouraging economic growth, reducing health risks, and restoring the environment.
