Brownfields Federal Programs Guide
There are nearly two dozen federal programs that can help communities in one way or another to assess, cleanup and reuse Brownfields. Although only a few of these federal programs focus explicitly on Brownfields (e.g. the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development), if communities apply some creativity to make the Brownfields connection, they can benefit from many other federal programs. To help make this Brownfields connection, this guidebook presents information about a range of federal resources that can provide technical and financial support to brownfields cleanup and redevelopment. In addition to programmatic information, this guide includes: a quick reference matrix that identifies specific types of projects with specific funders; snapshots of brownfields projects that have successfully leveraged funding; additional federal tools and resources; and an extensive overview of tax credit information and other possible financial incentives.
