Regional Updates

The Virginia Brownfields Restoration and Economic Redevelopment Assistance Fund (VBAF) program targets projects or phases of work associated with the restoration and redevelopment of brownfield sites in Virginia that will generate additional private investment and job creation in the immediate future.

Projects are evaluated and grants are awarded based on environmental benefit, potential for redevelopment and reuse of the site, economic benefit, use or reuse of existing infrastructure, and/or the limited ability to draw on other funding sources.

VBAF Grant Types

  • Assessment and Planning (funded up to $50,000 each)

  • Site Remediation (funded up to $500,000 each)

VBAF grants require a 1:1 match. Other grant funding, including EPA Brownfields grant funds, can be used as a match. Assessment & Planning grants can fund site activities such as Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs), Phase II ESAs, feasibility studies, asbestos and lead paint surveys, site redevelopment planning, etc. Currently, remediation grants can be used for asbestos and lead-based paint abatement.
