Vermont will get $1.3 million in federal funding to help clean up contaminated properties so they can be redeveloped.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency grants will be divided between five areas around the state.
The money will go to Addison, Rutland, southern Windsor County and Woodstock’s Two Rivers Ottauquechee regional planning commissions. The Northeastern Vermont Development Association and Northwest Regional Planning Commission will also receive Brownfield funding.
Vermont’s congressional delegation announced the grants yesterday.
The funding is part of a total of $70.7 million in Brownfield grants awarded around the country.
