Brownfields Clean up and Reinvestment

NAR believes it is important for state and local governments to support and encourage the cleanup of Brownfields by providing tax and other economic incentives. These incentives are necessary to attract private investment to abandoned properties and to compensate for the risk of investing in contaminated land - typically surrounded by economically blighted neighborhoods. NAR also supports EPA’s Brownfield Revolving Loan Fund, which provide communities with resources to transform contaminated sites into community assets that attract jobs and achieve broader economic development outcomes.
