Hazardous Discharge Site Remediation Fund (HDSRF) - Child Care Facility Grant Application

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) are pleased to provide you with the HDSRF Child Care Facility Grant. HDSRF Child Care Facility Grants are available to an existing (or prospective) owner or operator of a child care facility that is licensed or who has applied for a license with the Department of Children and Families (DCF) pursuant to P.L.1983, c.492 (C.30:5B-1 et seq). A grant reimbursement up to a maximum amount of $1500 is available to those child care facilities that submit a complete Preliminary Assessment (PA). The Department will award funding based on the cost to produce the PA.

Please note that Site Investigation (SI)/Remedial Investigation (RI) costs and NJDEP fees are not eligible for this grant. Please submit an invoice from the environmental consultant or Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) that completed the PA report to assist the Department in determining the amount of the award.
