North Dakota Tribes receive $810,000 to cleanup and revitalize properties


Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced $810,000 in Brownfields grants to cleanup properties on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation and the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation. The Tribes are among 151 communities across the nation receiving over $65.6 million in EPA Brownfields funding through our Assessment, Revolving Loan Fund, and Cleanup Grant programs. Under President Trump’s Administration, EPA has delivered approximately $287 million in Brownfields grants directly to communities and nonprofits for cleanup and redevelopment, job creation, and economic development through the award of over 948 grants.

“These EPA Brownfields funds will help our partners at the Spirit Lake Tribe and the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians support priority cleanup projects in several tribal communities in North Dakota,” said EPA Regional Administrator Gregory Sopkin. “We will continue find ways to help these Tribes as they work to clean up contaminated properties, protect human health, and create new opportunities for property reuse.”
