Underground Storage Tank Cleanup Fund
Access to the Fund requires completion of a Fund Application. A Fund Application can be obtained by either clicking below on "Claim Application" or by calling the Fund's toll free telephone number at 1-800-813-FUND (3863).
Upon receipt of a Fund Application, a claim number is assigned. Assignment of a claim number does not indicate the claims' eligibility or ranking. Whenever making inquiries about the status of a claim, refer to the claim number.
The Fund Application requests information necessary to determine eligibility for reimbursement of corrective action costs. To file an application with the Fund, the claimant must be a current or past owner or operator of the UST from which an unauthorized release of petroleum has occurred and be required to undertake corrective action as directed by the regulatory agency. In addition to petroleum USTs, owners of certain small home heating oil tanks that have had an unauthorized release of petroleum are also eligible.
After January 1, 2008, all applicants are requested to complete and submit the revised Fund Application dated January 2008.
