Brownfields Program overview

Properties that sit untouched because of their real or perceived contamination can be rehabilitated using our Brownfields Program in conjunction with the Voluntary Cleanup Program.

Because the Voluntary Cleanup Program provides both federal and state remedial plan approval in one step, banks will accept a "No Further Action" letter from the program as assurance that the state or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency won't order a costly, conventional cleanup.

In addition to cleanup plan reviews, the Brownfields Program offers assistance to property owners in the form of:

  • Environmental site assessments.
  • Tax credits.
  • Revolving loans.
  • Up to $250,000 a year in statewide project funding.
