The fund, which is administered through the Division of Compliance Assistance, provides financial assistance for projects that clean up brownfield properties, including old factories, former gas stations and other properties that are abandoned or underutilized due to environmental contamination.
Another round of grants for local governments and nonprofit entities will be available this fall. A loan program, which will be open to public, private and nonprofit entities, will be launched in 2015.
