Program Highlight

Cleanup activities at one of the dump sites.

 The Rosebud Sioux Tribe leveraged additional grants to supplement their Section 128(a) Tribal Response Program funding and complete several brownfields projects. They developed a brownfields inventory of 63 properties with Section 128(a) funding and cleaned up 32 of those properties with an Open Dump grant from the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). The Rosebud Sioux Tribe Brownfields Program continues to make every effort available with the funding that it receives to make a positive impact on the surrounding environment.
