The United States Environmental Protection Agency selected Montana West Economic Development to receive a $500,000 Brownfields Assessment Grant . These funds can be used to fund assessment of Brownfields sites throughout Flathead County, identifying contaminated industrial and commercial properties that may be cleaned up and returned to productive reuse and redevelopment.

What is a Brownfield?
A “brownfield” is a property that has been, or may have, a potential presence of hazardous substances, petroleum, or regulated building materials that may impede redevelopment opportunities. Example properties include abandoned gas stations, underused industrial or commercial properties, buildings where lead-based paint or asbestos are concerns, meth-impacted buildings, and vehicle/equipment maintenance facilities.
