Ohio Brownfield Fund


To incentivize the reuse of abandoned or underutilized property for a new economic purpose. When property is impacted by environmental contamination, lending institutions are often hesitant to provide financing to redevelop the site. The state Brownfield Fund is a viable option to kick-start redevelopment activities.


Ohio's Brownfield Fund provides technical assistance and loans for planning, assessment and cleanup of properties contaminated with hazardous materials, asbestos, lead-based paint or petroleum. The program provides loans that are less costly than typical private bank loans.

For Whom

Loans are made to private business owners, communities and nonprofits.
