Assessment, Revolving Loan Fund, and Cleanup (ARC) Grants
On November 22, 2013, U.S. EPA announced and posted its guidelines for the Brownfields Assessment, Revolving Loan Fund, and Cleanup (ARC) Grants for Federal Fiscal Year 2014. The deadline for grant proposals is January 22, 2014. .
Brownfields Tax Provisions Extended
The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 recently enacted by Congress includes a provision for the Expensing of Environmental Remediation Costs. The amendment made by Section 745 shall apply to expenditures paid or incurred after December 31, 2009 and extends expensing through December 31, 2011. Environmental cleanup costs are fully deductible in the year incurred, rather than capitalized and spread over time. Improvements in 2006 expanded the tax incentive to include petroleum cleanup. The extension of the Brownfields Tax Incentive encourages the cleanup and reuse of brownfields.
