Brownfields Assessment Assistance

The City of Baton Rouge and Parish of East Baton Rouge were awarded Brownfields Community Wide Assessment funding by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conduct Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessment and cleanup plans.

The target areas for this grant are the Mid-City neighborhood, Plank Road Corridor, and Scotlandville neighborhood. All three areas are communities with environmental justice concerns. All properties within the City-Parish may submit for assistance; however, the targeted areas will be given priority for site selections.

The Brownfields Program Process Guide for Property Owners and Stakeholders lays out the steps involved in the assessment and cleanup planning process, and how to apply. To participate in the Brownfields Program, please reach out to our office to determine eligibility.
