Alabama Brownfield Cleanup Receives $7.8M in Infrastructure Law Funding

On Tuesday, U.S. Representative Terri Sewell, representing Alabama’s 7th District, disclosed the allocation of $7,830,500 in funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to address contaminated Brownfield sites and promote environmental equity in Alabama. Beneficiaries of this funding include Craig Field and Gabriela Apartments in Selma, as well as the City of Montgomery. The grants were dispensed through EPA’s Brownfields Multipurpose, Assessment, and Cleanup (MAC) Grant Programs and Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) Grant Programs, facilitated by President Biden’s landmark Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

According to APR, Rep. Sewell was the only member of Alabama’s Congressional Delegation to vote in favor of President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

“For too long, minority and underserved communities have been disproportionately exposed to pollution and environmental hazards from industrial complexes,” said Rep. Sewell. “This transformational funding from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is about righting those wrongs and putting our communities on a path to regain their environmental health. I was so proud to help make this funding available and I applaud the Biden-Harris Administration for their commitment to environmental justice!”
