Welcome to the City of Washington’s Brownfields Program webpage. The Brownfields Program provides professional and economic assistance to owners and potential purchasers/developers of Brownfields properties with the goal of putting these sites back into beneficial reuse.

Here you will find information about program guidelines, activities and accomplishments. We encourage you to check back regularly to keep informed about Washington’s latest brownfields assessment projects and upcoming milestones.

As part of our program, we are seeking property owners and developers interested in revitalizing our brownfield properties. Attending a Brownfields Steering Committee meeting and visiting our Frequently Asked Questions page are great ways to learn more about our program and to provide feedback.

Benefits to you

 

Many times removing the environmental barriers associated with a property, either real or perceived, can open up a property’s reuse. Using grant money to pay for the initial environmental assessments can take away the financial hurdle that sometimes makes people look elsewhere.
