Grants to Connecticut municipalities and municipal entities, including economic development agencies and Connecticut brownfield land banks to address abandoned and underused sites. Funding is intended for costs associated with the assessment, investigation, remediation, and development of brownfields.

The Office of Brownfield Remediation and Development (OBRD) of the Dept. of Economic and Community Development (DECD) would like to announce the availability of funding under the Municipal Brownfield Grant Program (Remediation and Assessment) and would like to invite applications for the same. The purpose of the Municipal Grant Program as per C.G.S Section 32-763, is to provide grants for brownfield remediation and redevelopment. Additional goals for DECD include encouraging public-private partnerships, leveraging the maximum amount of private funds to increase the economic impact of the State’s investment, reactivating long-stalled sites and encouraging job creation.

The Brownfield Municipal Grant Program is a competitive program for municipalities and municipal entities, designed to assist with brownfield redevelopment projects in their communities that will make a significant economic impact. 

“Brownfield” Definition: As per C.G.S Section 32-760, “Brownfield” means any abandoned or underutilized site where redevelopment, reuse or expansion has not occurred due to the presence or potential presence of pollution in the buildings, soil or groundwater that requires investigation or remediation before or in conjunction with the redevelopment, reuse or expansion of the property.

Eligible Uses of Funds: Costs associated with the investigation, assessment, remediation and development of a brownfield, including but not limited to: soil, groundwater and infrastructure investigation; assessment; remediation; abatement; hazardous materials or waste disposal; long-term groundwater monitoring or monitoring for natural attenuation; other forms of institutional controls; attorneys’ fees (non-DECD contract related), planning, engineering and environmental consulting; building and structural issues (including demolition, asbestos abatement, PCB removal, contaminated wood or paint removal and other infrastructure remedial activities).

Public-Private Partnership: DECD hopes to encourage public-private partnerships with this NOFA offering. Remediation-redevelopment partnerships can help with arriving at cost-effective remediation solutions. In addition, the economic development impacts with such projects are assured.
