State of Connecticut Brownfield Programs


State of Connecticut Brownfield Financial Programs

Municipal Grant Program: A competitive program for municipalities and municipal entities to assist with brownfield redevelopment projects in their communities that will make a significant economic impact. Only municipalities and municipal entities are eligible to apply.

Targeted Brownfield Development Loan Program: This program provides financial assistance in the form of low-interest loans to applicants who seek to develop property. Loans are available to manufacturing, retail, residential or mixed-use developments, expansions or reuses.

Dry Cleaning Establishment Remediation Fund: This program is funded through a surcharge on the gross receipts collected from Connecticut dry cleaners. It provides grants of up to $300K for assessment and site cleanup.

Brownfield Area-Wide Revitalization (BAR) Planning Grant: A competitive program for municipalities, economic development agencies, and regional councils of governments to develop a comprehensive implementation plan for the remediation and redevelopment of neighborhoods, districts, corridors, downtowns, waterfront zones or other areas with multiple brownfields.


Brownfields projects may also be eligible for other state and federal financial incentives such as historic tax credits, urban renewal tax credits and other DECD administered programs. OBRD staff can help work with municipalities and developers to identify all relevant programs for which a project might be eligible.
