Brownfield Gap Financing Program Informational Session

Sumner Library, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Jan 12, 2017 - Jan 12, 2017
Website: http://mnbrownfields.org/brownfield-gap-financing-program-informational-session/

Join Minnesota Brownfields and Hennepin County as we discuss the Brownfield Gap Financing Program for 2017. A short speaker series including MN Brownfields, Hennepin County, and Project for Pride in Living will be followed by a question and answer session.

The Brownfield Gap Financing program (BGFP) provides grants to nonprofit developers for environmental assessment of property in Hennepin County through funding from the County’s Environmental Response Fund (ERF). This fund is intended to be used for unexpected environmental issues, to prepare for a larger funding request in the County funding cycle, or to identify/clarify and, in some cases, remediate suspected environmental concerns. Typical BGFP grants are <$15,000, grants are made on a rolling basis.

More information on the program can be found here.
