BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The federal Environmental Protection Agency is giving Vermont $800,000 in grants to clean up and redevelop old industrial sites.

Half of the amount is going to the Windham Regional Commission, and the other half is going to the Chittenden Country Regional Planning Commission.

The state-backed Brownfield Economic Revitalization Alliance has worked with the EPA in the past on targeted projects, including a former paper mill in Bellows Falls, a former machine tool plant in Springfield and a former creamery in Richmond.

Vermont received $2 million in grants last year.
