brownfieldsHARTFORD — The state’s Department of Economic & Community Development (DECD) awarded more than $17 million in brownfields-related funding to nine Connecticut municipalities.

Awards included nearly $13 million in loans and $4.6 million in grants that is channeled directly to municipalities, businesses, developers and regional development agencies for activities such as environmental assessment, planning, design, remediation, demolition, construction and acquisition. The state also offers a third-party liability-protection program for eligible brownfields redevelopers.

Funding for these services will affect sites in commercial and industrial sectors, housing and mixed-use developments with hotel, residential and retail space in the municipalities of Bridgeport, Derby, Enfield, Hartford, Middletown, Preston, Stamford, Berlin and Waterbury.

DECD’s Office of Brownfield Remediation & Development is accepting applications for another round of funding; the deadline is February 3. More information can be found at
