Brownfield Program

The Grand Traverse Band (GTB) was awarded the Section 128(a) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) grant beginning in Fiscal Year 2012 to develop and maintain an environmental response program.  The GTB Environmental Response Program involves identifying potential brownfields sites on tribal land; establishing and maintaining a public record of brownfields sites; establishing oversight and enforcement authorities; providing opportunities for public participation; and developing mechanisms for approval of a cleanup plan.
