activities, and for state targeted site assessment
projects. Additionally, applicants may apply to

Why is Brownfields
Brownfields properties are often abandoned,
with owners no longer maintaining the property
or paying taxes. Abandoned properties can
quickly become eyesores, and may attract
vandalism and illegal dumping, which degrade
the environment, depress our communities,
and potentially put our health at risk.
What would be the Advantage
of a Brownfields Revitalization
Project in My Community?
Productively reusing Brownfields reduces
urban sprawl, increases the tax base, cleans up
the environment, encourages urban revitalization
and creates jobs for the community.
