Clean brownfields- federal & state incentives to clean and reuse

A brownfield site is land previously used for industrial purposes or some commercial uses. The land may be contaminated by low concentrations of hazardous waste or pollution, and has the potential to be reused once it is cleaned up.

The primary goals of the Florida Brownfield Redevelopment Act are to reduce public health and environmental hazards on existing commercial and industrial sites that are abandoned or underused due to these hazards and create financial and regulatory incentives to encourage voluntary cleanup and redevelopment of sites. A variety of incentives exist including tax credits and exemptions for redevelopment, and grants and funding for cleanup.
