Brownfields Program

Welcome to the Unified Government Brownfield Program

Brownfields are "real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant." Brownfields blight communities across the country, inhibiting economic development and contaminating the environment.  Brownfield sites include:

EPA Laboratory
EPA Laboratory
Built on Brownfield Site

  • unproductive and abandoned manufacturing sites
  • service stations
  • industrial facilities
  • chemical processing plants 
  • open space properties suspected to have been impacted by hazardous wastes or petroleum products
By cleaning up these properties, local governments can protect the environment, spur economic growth, and create jobs. Since 1995, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has provided grant funding to local governments to address the problem of brownfields. Funds are provided to assess contamination at brownfields properties, clean up the sites, and engage in redevelopment planning.
