BOSTON – The West Broadway Neighborhood Association and WaterFire Providence are the two Rhode Island recipients of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency brownfield grants aimed at protecting health and cleaning up communities.

The grants, funded by EPA’s brownfields assessment, revolving loan fund, and cleanup grants, provide communities with funding necessary to assess, clean up and redevelop contaminated properties, boost local economies and leverage jobs while protecting public health and the environment.

In the six New England states, EPA is awarding 54 separate grants to 32 different recipient organizations. The funding is part of more than $62 million in EPA brownfields investments awarded across the country.

According to a news release, Water Fire will receive three grants of $600,000. The association will received $200,000. •
