Asbestos Remediation Grants

Updated July 20, 2017

Since the 1980s, the removal of asbestos has been a major concern for businesses, schools, government agencies and individuals. Undertaking asbestos remediation is a costly but necessary endeavour. Fortunately there are grants available to help make asbestos abatement more affordable.

Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program

The Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program is operated through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This program has two main stages: in the first stage, funding is provided for a new building; in the second stage, funds are provided for existing buildings. Through the second stage, funds for asbestos remediation can be awarded.
