Agency: Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD)

Program Description:
The Urban Site Remedial Action Program facilitates the transfer, reuse and redevelopment of potentially polluted commercial and industrial real property which otherwise would remain vacant and unproductive for the economy of the municipality, region and state. When necessary, the State can commit public funds to prepare the environmental site assessments and implement the site remediation. These funds are intended as "seed capital" to expedite the project. The State could recover the funds it commits to a project.
  • Economic Development Initiative: The initiative is available to developers not requiring financial assistance, but needing state guidance through the remedial investigation and construction. Property owner must be willing to remediate the site. DECD will work with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to expedite the review, inspection, and approval of the clean-up planning and implementation of those properties identified by DECD as significant to the state's economy.
  • Unwilling/Unable Party: The property owner either has not been identified, is unwilling, or is unable to clean the property. DEP will conduct studies, remedial action planning and, if necessary, the implementation of the remedial action work plan for those properties identified by DECD as significant to the state's economy. The state may seek to recover its funds.
    PROJECT CAP: $15 million

Site should be determined by DECD to be an economic development priority, based on economic benefits and need -- i.e. number of jobs retained/created, type of jobs, etc. In the case of Unwilling/Unable Party , dependence is upon the availability of funds.
