    Applications for the NJEDA’s new Brownfields Loan Program open on January 14th, 2021! Learn more and apply today at https://www.njeda.com/bfloans.

    The Brownfields Loan Program provides low-interest loans of up to $5 million to potential brownfield site purchasers and current brownfield site owners who intend to develop commercial, retail, or mixed-use developments, expansions, or reuses. Unlike many funding sources for brownfields projects, the Brownfields Loan Program will finance pre-construction planning, demolition, asbestos, PCB removal, and lead-based paint remediation.

    Applications will be open from January 14th to April 13th, 2021. Loans will be awarded through a competitive application process, with projects receiving scores based on various details about the brownfield site and the proposed redevelopment project. Projects that provide beneficial end uses will receive higher scores.

    Learn more and prepare to apply today at https://www.njeda.com/bfloans.

    Transforming Brownfields: A Path Towards Environmental and Social Justice

    The Office of Brownfield and Community Revitalization (OBCR) would like to invite you to a special event being hosted by NJEDA.  This virtual conference is free and will discuss “Transforming Brownfields: A Path Towards Environmental and Social Justice”  Monday, October 26, 2020; 2:00pm

     This webinar will feature NJDEP's Deputy Commissioner Olivia Glenn discussing New Jersey's recently passed landmark environmental justice legislation.

     A round table discussion with Passaic Mayor Hector Lora and Trenton Mayor W. Reed Gusciora will follow, focusing on how communities have long suffered the negative impacts of contaminated, industrial and commercial properties, and how transformation of those properties can create opportunities for social equity and environmental justice.   See http://bit.ly/TransformingBFs for registration!

    In other news ….OBCR will be restarting our Quarterly Brownfield Roundtable.  Please put a hold on your calendars for December 8 from 9-12.  The meeting will be virtual.  Details will be provided soon.
