Community Revitalization Program
About the Program:
The Site Cleanup Assistance Program (SCAP) has updated its Community Revitalization Program and introduced an application and ranking tools to select projects. Our goal continues to be working with City and County governments across the State to resolve environmental issues that are preventing property revitalization. This program allows for renewed use of a building or a site for business or government, and has the potential to revitalize communities by increasing the tax base, creating new jobs, and removing community eyesores and safety hazards. This program allows local communities to access the DEQ’s expertise in site cleanup, paving the way for reuse of a site or building.
While the focus of the Community Revitalization Program is asbestos and lead-based paint, properties that pose an imminent and substantial endangerment to human health and/or have other types of environmental contaminants may be considered on a case by case basis. If you believe your property poses an imminent and substantial threat, please contact the Community Revitalization program contact, Trenton Wilhelm.
