There are key supports to be aware of for brownfield redevelopment in Virginia. The Virginia Brownfields Restoration and Economic Redevelopment Assistance Fund (VBAF) is available through the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP). It offers grants and loans to local governments for site assessment and remediation.
WVU TAB and Virginia representatives did a thorough overview of the FY2023 EPA brownfield grant guidelines (recording and presentation slides available).
A list of Virginia land revitalization cleanup websites is kept updated by the EPA. WVU TAB maintains contact information for the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality and state EPA representatives.
