The Nevada Brownfields Program (NBP) provides funding to help with the assessment and cleanup of contaminated properties. Program funds may be used to perform a records search to assess contamination (Phase I), conduct onsite investigations of contamination (Phase II), and, if necessary, safely and properly clean up a site.
Up to $200,000 may be used to fund Phase I and Phase II assessments, and up to $200,000 may be used for cleanups. No match is required. Once you’re enrolled in the program, the process is turnkey. NBP has highly-qualified State contractors who will perform the assessments and remediation, keep you updated as milestones are achieved, and provide a final report once the project is complete.
