Financial Assistance

 

Financial Assistance

NJDEP formed the Environmental Claims Administration (ECA) program, financed by the state Spill Compensation Fund, to help innocent individuals, businesses and local governments suffering direct or indirect damages from the discharge of hazardous substances. ECA also handles claims made through the Sanitary Landfill Facility Contingency Fund, which provides compensation for damages resulting from the improper closure of any governmentally approved sanitary landfill.

ECA also administers the Hazardous Discharge Site Remediation Fund (HDSRF), which provides financial assistance and grants for investigations and/or remediation of certain contaminated properties and the Petroleum Underground Storage Tank Remediation, Upgrade and Closure Fund ("Petroleum UST Fund" or "UST Fund").

The United States Environmental Protection Agency has a program that provides Technical Assistance Grants to affected groups at Superfund sites. The purpose of these grants is to assist citizens' groups in understanding technical information that assesses potential hazards and the selection and design of appropriate response actions at these sites.

NJDEP Introduces a Technical Assistance Grant Program

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection announces the introduction of a Technical Assistance Grant program. The program provides funding to nonprofit community groups to employ independent Licensed Site Remediation Professionals as technical advisors to perform activities to improve the public’s understanding of environmental conditions and remediation of contaminated sites in their communities.
