Brownfield site redevelopment, before and after

EPA BROWNFIELDS REDEVELOPMENT GRANT

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the Brownfields Program to empower states, communities and other stakeholders in economic development to work together in a collaborative manner.

A brownfields site is a vacant or underutilized property where actual or perceived environmental contamination complicates its expansion or redevelopment. Clean-up costs and risks deter potential developers and create a barrier to community revitalization and economic development.
