State and Federal Incentives

If a site is part of a designated brownfield area or is a designated site, incentives are available to the end user, including tax incentives, to reuse or clean-up the property from its current state. Through a combination of state and federal programs, if a property is contaminated, and the current owner is not a primarily responsible party, clean-up funding may also be available.
