New Jersey is burdened with more than 10,000 properties that are, or may be, contaminated with hazardous substances and are either sitting idle or are underutilized. These Brownfield sites threaten the environment, drain the economy and spoil quality of life in many of our communities. Brownfield's exist in suburban and rural areas as well as in urban communities.
Returning Brownfield sites to productive use pays dividends. These projects protect the environment and preserve open space. Every acre of Brownfield redevelopment spares 4.5 acres of pristine land from development. Brownfield redevelopment also boosts local tax revenue, creates jobs, revitalizes New Jersey's cities and towns, and improves the quality of life for area residents.
The program provides loans to municipalities, counties and public authorities to support a wide range of cleanup and remediation activities necessary to restore the Brownfield site for re-use purposes.
