Michigan Brownfield Redevelopment Programs

Brownfield properties are those in which the redevelopment or reuse of the property may be complicated by the presence or perception of contamination.  Revitalizing and redeveloping these properties protects the environment, reuses existing infrastructure, minimizes urban sprawl and creates economic opportunities. The Remediation and Redevelopment Division provides financial and technical assistance including grants, loans, tax increment financing and free site assessments to facilitate the redevelopment of brownfield properties. 

For information on the State of Michigan Brownfield Program, please contact 517-284-5113 or email at EGLE-Brownfields@Michigan.gov for more information and assistance.
