Local Governments Reimbursement Program – Environmental Protection Agency

Applications accepted year-round. In the event of a release (or threatened release) of hazardous substances, EPA may reimburse local governments for expenses related to the release and associated emergency response measures. The Local Governments Reimbursement Program provides a “safety net” of up to $25,000 per incident to local governments that do not have funds available to pay for response actions.
