New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA) Announces the Availability of Funding Under the Brownfield Impact Fund. NJEDA’s New Jersey Brownfield Impact Funds will facilitate the redevelopment of brownfields by addressing funding gaps in order to make the remediation phase financially viable after which construction financing can be obtained by the developer. Another goal of the program is to minimize the negative environmental impacts of developing current green spaces for commercial and industrial use. Applicants must demonstrate site control and certify that they did not contribute to contamination on the site. All applicants must have a Redevelopment Plan for the contaminated property. There is no submittal deadline. Applications will be available on the NJEDA web site on January 20, 2022. Funds will be awarded on a first come first serve basis. For the first 90 days, applications will only be accepted from designated CCI Communities. These include Camden, Trenton, Perth Amboy, Bayonne, Bridgeton, Jersey City, Millville, Newark, Paterson, Paulsboro, Salem, and Vineland. After 90 days (April 20, 2022), applications will be accepted for projects not located in CCI communities, subject to availability of funding.
