2013 Brownfield Renewal Funding Now Available

The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources is now accepting applications for funding available under the Brownfield Renewal Funding Program. The program funds studies to determine if a site is contaminated and to develop options for site restoration and redevelopment. It is available to private property owners, including local governments, First Nations, non-profit agencies, and businesses.

Application forms are available online. The deadline for applications is May 17, 2013.

A brownfield is an industrial or commercial property that is abandoned or underused.  Brownfield sites are often contaminated and have redevelopment potential.  Brownfield redevelopment helps to increase commercial space, creating employment, improving community safety, retaining green space and reducing pressures on undeveloped land.
