The Brownfields Revitalization Fund (BRF) was established in Vermont statute as part of the state’s voluntary contaminated properties clean-up program, known as the Redevelopment of Contaminated Properties Program (RCPP). The BRF utilizes the expertise of two State agencies and VEDA:
- The Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD) administers the BRF;
- The Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) is responsible for overseeing site management and approving redevelopment work plans;
- The Vermont Economic Development Authority (VEDA) is authorized to use the funds in the BRF to make loans to eligible and qualified applicants.
