Benefits of TCEQ Brownfields Program
Brownfields Site Assessments
The Brownfields Site Assessment (BSA) Program primarily performs services such as Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments conducted during commercial real estate transactions for local governments and nonprofit organizations; however, the scope of work can range from filling in data gaps to performing small-scale site investigations. The BSA Program offers free technical oversight for brownfields projects that have been awarded EPA Subtitle A grants.
The TCEQ performs BSAs for as many eligible sites and l accepts applications as long as resources remain. To increase the chances of your project being funded, you should apply as soon as possible. For more information on funding availability and BSAs, please contact the Brownfields Site Assessment Program.

Through its relationship with the EPA, the TCEQ offers technical advice, education, and project partnering (including partnering with other federal and state agencies) for some brownfields-redevelopment projects supported by local governments, or where a local government is playing a key role in the redevelopment.
