(1) For assessment grants, an eligible entity may apply for up to $200,000 to address sites contaminated by hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants (including hazardous substances co-mingled with petroleum) and up to $200,000 to address sites contaminated by petroleum. Applicants may request a waiver of the $200,000 limit up to $350,000 for sites contaminated by hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants (including hazardous substances co-mingled with petroleum) and up to $350,000 to address sites contaminated by petroleum. Waiver requests must be based on the anticipated level of contamination, size, or ownership status of the site. These limits are mandatory under CERCLA 104(k)(4)(A). (2) For revolving loan fund grants, an eligible entity may apply for up to $1,000,000 for an initial RLF grant. Coalitions of eligible entities may apply together under one recipient for up to $1,000,000 per eligible entity. This limit is mandatory under CERCLA 104(k)(4)(A). (3) For cleanup grants, an eligible entity may apply for up to $200,000 per site. The $200,000 per site limit is mandatory under CERCLA 104(k)(3)(A). In Fiscal Year 2004, EPA anticipates limiting assessment funding to $400,000 per eligible entity unless a statutory waiver of the $200,000 per site limit is granted. The maximum amount of assessment funding available per applicant if waivers are granted is anticipated to be $700,000 per eligible entity. The Agency anticipates limiting the number of applications that it will consider for cleanup grants to five sites per eligible applicant. Applicants have to prove fee simple title ownership by the time of award and no later than September 30, 2004, to receive cleanup grants.
