Brownfields: Selection Criteria and Application

Selection Criteria

Applications are evaluated with consideration to factors such as the likelihood and extent of environmental contamination, community need, the likelihood of redevelopment, the nature of the redevelopment plans, and community outreach efforts.

Application Process

A brief Pre-Application enables the EIERA to determine site and applicant eligibility. Once this is done, the EIERA will invite a full application providing details of the cleanup to be conducted and the redevelopment plans.

The full application is reviewed by a multi-disciplinary team, and their funding recommendations are forwarded to the EIERA board for full approval. Final approval is contingent on agreement from the EPA.

Prior to full execution of funding documents, applicants must apply to the Missouri Brownfields Voluntary Cleanup Program.


The Pre-Application is in Microsoft Word Fill-In format. Please submit your signed pre-application and other material to:
