Brownfield Program Incentives

The primary goals of the Brownfield Redevelopment Act (links to Statutes) are:

  • Reduce public health and environmental hazards on existing commercial and industrial sites that are abandoned or underused due to these hazards

  • Create financial and regulatory incentives to encourage voluntary cleanup and redevelopment of sites

  • Derive cleanup target levels and a process for obtaining a "No Further Action" letter using Risk-Based Corrective Action principles

  • Provide the opportunity for Environmental Equity and Justice.
