State Invests $350 Million in Brownfield Remediation Program
Along with the additional funding, lawmakers approved changes to how the funding will flow to local entities that are seeking to remediate brownfield sites. Known changes include:
$1 million set aside for each county in the state in both FY2024 and FY2025
Each county will need to have a designated lead applicant who will be responsible for the submission of all applications for that county. Who the lead applicant will be varies from county to county based on population and the presence of certain local government entities.
