Brownfield Funding Resources Webinar


Learn more about local public financing programs that assist with the cost of cleaning up and redeveloping contaminated sites on Wednesday, February 6.

You are invited to learn about local public grants that help pay the cost of cleaning up contaminated sites known as brownfields. Brownfield properties are often close to a high-quality workforce, good transportation, and transit. We are interested in helping redevelopment that will yield jobs, increase the local tax base, and leverage private investment while avoiding costly new public infrastructure.

In the Minnesota metropolitan area, there are multiple opportunities for funding to remediate contaminated sites.

Representatives from the Metropolitan Council and the Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) will discuss how to apply for public financing.

Who is eligible to apply for funding?

Cities, Counties, EDAs, HRAs, and Port Authorities. (Private organizations redeveloping real estate are encouraged to work with eligible applicants to apply.)

Over $8 million in grant funds (and low-cost loans) will be available to investigate and clean sites contaminated with:

  • Petroleum contamination
  • Groundwater contamination
  • Soil contamination
  • Harmful soil vapor
  • Asbestos and hazardous materials

Applications for the next competitive grant round are due May 1.
