Posted 5/20/13

BOSTON – The West Broadway Neighborhood Association and WaterFire Providence are the two Rhode Island recipients of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency brownfield grants aimed at protecting health and cleaning up communities.

In the six New England states, EPA is awarding 54 separate grants to 32 different recipient organizations. The funding is part of more than $62 million in EPA brownfields investments awarded across the country.
