Technical Assistance Program

The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation provides technical and financial assistance to qualified applicants who intend to redevelop a contaminated property.  Available assistance ranges from completion of a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment, through corrective action planning and cleanup.  All work approved under this program is paid for by the Department and performed by pre-qualified contractors.

Assistance is available to prospective purchasers and innocent current owners of contaminated property.  Applicants can have neither caused nor contributed to the contamination nor be connected to any person or organization that has caused or contributed to the contamination. 

The VTDEC is now accepting applications for financial assistance for brownfield redevelopment projects. Funding is available to conduct Phase I, Phase II, Corrective Action Planning, Corrective Action Implementation and Area Wide Planning.  The funding cycle for this request is October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017; the VTDEC has approximately $300,000 to fund this work.

This application cycle is revolving, but the VTDEC will be ready to select projects in October.
