The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded Palm Beach County $1.4 million to establish a Brownfields Revolving Loan Fund Program for clean up and revitalization of contaminated properties throughout the County. The County will use the BRLF funds to provide financial assistance to eligible borrowers and subgrantees to cleanup properties, create employment opportunities, and revitalize the community. Participants must have site control or access to the subject property.

Projects will be selected using U.S. EPA program eligibility criteria and restrictions, BRLF Program Guidelines, and the recommendation of the County’s Loan Review Committee.

Eligible applicants are public entities, non-profit organizations, political subdivisions, private entities, developers and businesses located in the county. BRLF funds are focused on cleanup activities associated with hazardous substances and petroleum contamination sites.

NOTE: Eligible applicants may qualify for state and federal financial incentives or tax credits if the property is located in a designated Brownfield area. Please see the following links:
