One Month Remains to Apply for NJEDA Brownfields Loan Program

TRENTON, N.J. (March 12, 2020) – There is just one month remaining to apply for the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) Brownfields Loan Program. The program offers low-interest financing of $100,000 to $5 million for all aspects of brownfields revitalization projects, including assessment, investigation, and demolition. It is one of the only funding sources available to cover pre-construction planning, demolition, asbestos, PCB removal, and lead-based paint remediation.

Applications for the Brownfields Loan Program are due Tuesday, April 13th 2021. More information and the application are available at

To help potential applicants prepare to apply, the NJEDA is hosting an informational webinar on March 17th 2021. NJEDA Senior Brownfields Advisor Elizabeth Limbrick will provide an overview of the Loan Program and walk through the application. Register for the webinar at   


About the Brownfields Loan Program

Historically, remediation has been a major barrier to successful brownfield redevelopment projects because of the lack of funding sources available to support site assessment, planning, and cleanup. The Brownfields Loan Program is a unique investment tool that addresses this challenge by filling in these funding gaps to make the remediation phase of revitalization projects financially viable. 

Loans made through the program will be awarded through a competitive application process. Projects will be scored based on details of the brownfield site and the proposed redevelopment project. Projects that promote environmental resiliency, public health, and community well-being will receive higher scores and may also qualify for interest rate reductions if approved for financing.

Projects that receive financing through the Brownfields Loan Program will be eligible for the Brownfields Impact Fund and Brownfields Revitalization Tax Credit programs when they become available.
