American Indian tribes on two Montana reservations have been awarded a combined $600,000 under a federal program to clean up contaminated properties.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announcement was part of $62 million in grants awarded nationwide.

When the cleanup is done, the tribes plan to redevelop the land for commercial use, tribal housing and green space.
