The city of Rochester has received a $200,000 federal grant for brownfield remediation, city officials announced.

The Environmental Protection Agency grant will be used to assess sites within the city’s brownfield opportunity areas, officials said Thursday. Four areas, totaling 1,867 acres, have been established in the northeast, northwest and southwest quadrants.

“This grant will help the city continue to address brownfield properties that are degrading many of our neighborhoods,” Mayor Lovely Warren said in a statement.

Rochester has received 19 competitive grants totaling $3.78 million from the EPA since the federal agency began its brownfield initiative in 1995, officials said.

The $200,000 grant announced this week will complement $1.5 million in state brownfield grants in place in Rochester, officials said.
