Online Tools Overview

The Brownfield Inventory Tool (BIT) is a FREE, online, comprehensive site inventory and brownfields program management tool. BIT was designed especially for users working under an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cooperative agreement, but any entity working on establishing a site inventory database will find BIT useful in consolidating environmental and administrative information from sites in multiple programs.


Learn about BIT by selecting BIT under Resources. Use BIT by logging into your TAB account and selecting BIT under Online Tools.


TAB EZ is a FREE online tool intended to streamline and simplify the grant writing process when applying for EPA brownfields assessment and cleanup grants. TAB EZ is very user friendly,  offers helpful hints for addressing proposal requirements, and links to additional resources.
