St. Bernard Parish Assessment Grant

The Regional Planning Commission is the recipient of a $500,000 brownfield assessment grant from the EPA for Fiscal Years 2023-2025.

The study area for this award is the St. Bernard Commercial Corridor – from Judge Perez Drive to the Mississippi River. Priority sites include the wastewater treatment plant on the Chalmette Battlefield, and the Ford Plant in Arabi.

The page will provide project updates, photographs, meeting notes, and financial reports during the grant period.

The Regional Planning Commission looks forward to working with our partners in St. Bernard on supporting the redevelopment of brownfield sites.

Are you a property owner, developer, prospective business, lender, or developer in St. Bernard Parish? Please contact me to see if your project is eligible for a grant-funded Phase I or Phase II environmental assessment.
