The Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) is now accepting applications for the latest round of grants under the Connecticut Brownfield Remediation Program, through November 16th of this year. Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced that up to $5 million will be provided to remediate and redevelop brownfield sites for eligible applicants and projects. Since 2012, the state of Connecticut has invested $173 million to investigate, clean up, and revitalize brownfield sites or underutilized properties, such as old or vacant factories, mills, warehouses, and other contaminated sites or structures.
“Under Governor Malloy’s leadership, we are seeing the transformative power of investing in brownfield redevelopment in numerous communities across Connecticut, with new jobs, new housing, new energy generation, and new parks and open space coming to life at what were once blighted sites,” said Tim Sullivan, DEDC Deputy Commissioner.
