Kentucky Brownfield Redevelopment Program

​Does your community have properties that need a little help? Do some buildings in the area have an environmental past? Are there old hospitals that are in disuse and attract crime? Do you have mine-scarred lands? Are there former dry cleaning establishments in town? If so, you could have a brownfield. 

The Kentucky Brownfield Redevelopment Program seeks to help redevelop and revitalize properties that are abandoned or underutilized due to real or perceived contamination. There are an estimated 8,000 brownfields across the state. They include sites such as old gas stations, mine-scarred lands, abandoned factories, old schools and hospitals and meth labs. Our program offers comprehensive services to help with these properties. 

Program services include:

  • Free site assessment services to local governments, nonprofits and qualifying public agencies
  • Risk management through the Brownfield Redevelopment and Reuse Program
  • Grants and loans through the Cleaner Commonwealth Fund
  • Funding identification based on property end use
  • Grant writing education and assistance
  • Information and educational events
  • Assistance through the Brownfield Help Desk
