Brownfields are any vacant or underused properties where reuse is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination. Examples include former gas stations, vacant lots with contaminated soil, or buildings with asbestos and lead-based paint. Low-interest cleanup loans and grants, and assessment services, are offered. Non-profits, private companies, and community organizations can apply; however, only non-profits and governments are eligible for grants.
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.
By cleaning up these properties, local governments can protect the environment, spur economic growth, and create jobs.
