MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Jim Doyle announced Monday $5.6 million of federal stimulus money to address brownfield sites, create jobs, stimulate local economies and improve public health in Wisconsin.
"These funds will help us put people to work in Wisconsin while also improving public health and the environment," Governor Doyle said. "Brownfield clean up projects revitalize areas that may be contaminated, creating opportunities for future construction projects and job growth."
The state is receiving $2 million in federal stimulus funds that will be allocated through competitive grants from Wisconsin's brownfield state revolving loan fund. The total allotment for brownfields programs funded nationwide in the federal stimulus plan was $4 million - of which Wisconsin was awarded half.
In addition to those funds, the following Wisconsin brownfield projects will receive a total of $3.6 million:
Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee
