Cleaner Commonwealth Clean up Funds – Ongoing

The Kentucky Brownfield Redevelopment Program was granted funds from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish a revolving loan fund for brownfield cleanups in Kentucky. The program established the Cleaner Commonwealth Fund (CCF) to help public entities and nonprofits address pollutants at brownfield properties.

There are two pools of money in the Cleaner Commonwealth Fund. A portion of the funds is designated as grant funding, and the other portion is for no-interest or low-interest loans.

  • Grants - Public entities including local governments, quasi government agencies and nonprofits (501c3) are eligible for grant funding in the Cleaner Commonwealth Fund. 
  • Loans - Public, including nonprofits, are eligible to apply for loans from the fund.
