The City of Manitowoc through this Request for Qualifications (RFQ), is seeking a qualified environmental consulting (QEC) firm to provide grant application assistance, project management, environmental inventory and assessment, and public information and outreach services related to United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) brownfield assessment grant, beginning with a Site Specific and Community-Wide Assessment Grant for Petroleum and Hazardous Substances Brownfields as part of the U.S. EPA Brownfields Grant Competition for Fiscal Year 2018 (FY 2018). The City is seeking qualified firms to assist in grant application preparation and then implementation of the successful grant awarded to the City.
The purpose of the U.S. EPA brownfields assessment grant will be to conduct Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments (ESAs) at brownfield sites located within the City, as part of efforts to spur redevelopment and reuse of these sites. The objectives of the City may expand at a later date to include actual cleanup of individual sites targeted for assessment, depending on the future availability of funding. The successful consultant will bring experience and insight to a partnership with the City to refine and implement these grants and explore other grants and brownfields initiatives as funds become available.
