Brownfields are areas once home to industrial or commercial operations that may have left behind hazardous waste or pollution. But help is available to clean up brownfields so they can become successful redevelopment projects. You can read more at-a-glance in our Brownfields Brochure (PDF) or in more detail in our full Brownfields Program (PDF).

If you're interested in a brownfield redevelopment project, download our Brownfields Assessment Pre-application (PDF) and Brownfield Loan Pre-application (PDF).
