Redevelopment Grant Program
This program helps communities with the costs of redeveloping blighted industrial, residential or commercial sites and putting land back into productive use.
The program assists development authorities with demolition, infrastructure improvements, stabilizing unstable soil, installing ponding or other environmental infrastructure and interior abatement for adaptive reuse projects.
Grants are awarded to those sites where there is a planned redevelopment.
Grants pay up to half of redevelopment costs for a qualifying site, with a 50 percent local match.
Eligible applicants are cities, counties, port authorities, housing and redevelopment authorities, and economic development authorities. Both publicly and privately owned sites qualify.
Applications are ranked on several criteria. They include the tax base increase and job creation resulting from the redevelopment of the site.
Applicants must make a 50 percent local match to be eligible for grant funds.
For additional qualifications, see DEED’s website.
