Brownfields Program


About Brownfields

Fort Worth's Brownfields Program aims to decrease blight, remediate contamination and further encourage redevelopment in the community.

By definition, a brownfield is a property, for which the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse may be complicated by the presence (or potential presence) of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. Since 1995, the Environmental Protection Agency's Brownfields and Land Revitalization Program has grown into a proven, results-oriented program that has changed the way communities address and manage contaminated properties. The Environmental Protection Agency has awarded millions of dollars to local governments to enhance local brownfields programs throughout the country. The program is designed to empower states, tribes, communities, and other stakeholders to work together to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields. Using grants and low-interest loans, the Fort Worth Brownfields Program may be able to assist property owners and developers with technical guidance and resources to offset costs for brownfields cleanup activities.
