State of Ohio Brownfield Redevelopment Resources

Targeted Brownfield Assessment
The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) provides targeted brownfield assessments to eligible sites. Under this program, contractors from OEPA will conduct a Phase I Assessment on development sites, the first step in the due diligence process.
Ohio Water Development Authority (OWDA) Brownfield Loan Program
The OWDA Brownfield Loan Program can provide a low-interest loan up to $500,000 for assessment projects or $5,000,000 for remediation.
