What are the Brownfield Grant Programs?

What is a Brownfield?
A Brownfield is a vacant or underutilized property which is suspected of being contaminated based on its history.  Examples of Brownfields include former gas stations, abandoned dry cleaners, and industrial properties. 
Brownfield redevelopment removes blight, increases the tax base, retains and attracts quality businesses, provides services, brings jobs to the community, and reduces the potential of harm from environmental contamination. 

How we can help:
The Brownfield Assessment & Cleanup Grant program seeks to assist businesses, property owners and infill developers by overcoming the barriers that contamination presents for the redevelopment of underutilized brownfield sites in Charlotte's Business Corridor Revitalization areas.
