LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Federal environmental officials are awarding $1 million in brownfields grants to four recipients in Kentucky.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says the money will be used to help clean up and develop contaminated properties. EPA officials say another goal is to boost local economies and create jobs while protecting human health.

The agency says the Cumberland Valley Area Development District will receive a $400,000 grant. It says three other recipients are receiving $200,000 each. They are Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government, the city of Vanceburg and Greater Louisville YMCA.
