As part of the Ohio Department of Development’s strategic goal of investing in Ohio’s regional assets, the Urban Development Division is assisting Ohio’s urban places and buildings in overcoming obstacles of achieving sustainable revitalization through innovative financing, critical resources and redevelopment expertise.
To assist in these efforts, the Urban Development Division is offering the Brownfield Revolving Loan Fund program. The Brownfield Revolving Loan Fund, capitalized by a grant from the United States Environmental Protection Agency, offers below-market rate loans to assist with the remediation of a brownfield property to return it to productive economic use in a community. Municipalities, nonprofits and private entities can apply for program funding to conduct remediation activities at eligible sites.
