2019 Environmental Restoration Program
Description:

Purpose

Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) Article 56, Title 5 authorizes an Environmental Restoration Program (ERP). The purpose of this program is to provide grants to municipalities for the investigation and remediation of municipally-owned properties known or suspected to be contaminated with hazardous substances or petroleum. The remediated properties may then be redeveloped for a variety of uses including industrial, commercial, residential, and recreational. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is soliciting ERP Grant applications from municipalities and municipalities in partnership with community-based organizations for the remediation of previously-investigated ERP sites.

Eligibility

Eligible projects are those which have been the subject of an environmental investigation under the New York State Environmental Restoration Program and have a DEC-issued Record of Decision (ROD) for the site . The project's purpose must be to implement the ROD, or the ROD as subsequently modified based on new information in accordance with DER-2, Making Changes to Selected Remedies.

The Municipality must agree for itself and for its lessees and successors in title that any proposed change to the Contemplated Use at a site shall be governed by the provisions of ECL §56-0511 and any implementing regulations. The following criteria must be satisfied in order for a project to be eligible:

a. The Municipality must own the property. Proof of ownership must be submitted with the application.

b. Other than activities related to a previous ERP State Assistance Contract (SAC) for this site, the Municipality has not generated, transported or disposed of, nor arranged for or caused the generation, transportation or disposal of, hazardous substances on the property; and has not undertaken, and will not undertake, any indemnification obligation respecting a party responsible under law for the remediation of the property.

NOTE: For eligibility purposes, a Municipality is not considered to be an arranger if the Municipality has leased the property to another party that generated, transported or disposed of, or that arranged for or caused the generation, transportation or disposal of, hazardous substances on that property, and the Municipality either did not know that such other party generated, transported or disposed of, or arranged for or caused the generation, transportation or disposal of, such contamination, or so knew and took action to remediate, or cause the remediation, of such hazardous substances. In addition, a Municipality is not considered to be a generator, transporter, or arranger merely for having rendered care, assistance, or advice in the course of an incident creating a danger to public health or welfare or to the environment as a result of any release of a hazardous substance or the threat of same.

c. The project satisfies the criteria of ECL §56-0505. At a minimum, the applicant must demonstrate that the project is intended to result in a benefit to the environment and is either an economic benefit to the State or a public recreational use of the property.

d. The site is not listed in New York State’s Registry of Inactive Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites as a class “1” or class “2” at the time of application.

e. The Municipality complied with the requirements of a previous ERP SAC and responded to DEC’s requests in a timely manner.

Applications must be submitted through the NYS Grants Gateway (https://grantsgateway.ny.gov).

Paper applications will NOT be accepted. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications prior to the application deadline. Late applications will not be accepted.
