LDEQ’s Brownfield Cleanup Revolving Loan Fund (BCRLF) provides low interest loans with flexible terms to support the environmental cleanup of vacant and underutilized properties to get them ready for reuse.
If you are interested in applying for a Brownfield Cleanup Loan, we encourage you to complete the BCRLF Interest Form and submit it to Brownfields@LA.gov. A member of our Brownfields Team will follow up with you to help determine if the BCRLF is the best fit for your project.
BCRLF IMPLEMENTATION PLAN
LDEQ developed a BCRLF Implementation Plan that provides details on how the program will be administered, including project and applicant eligibility, how projects will be reviewed and selected, and the cleanup and loan repayment process.
Please note that that Implementation Plan is a living document that may be revised from time to time based on the dynamic Brownfield environment. In addition, as each Brownfield site is unique, each funding structure will be unique. LDEQ’s goal is to work with the funding applicant and the community to support their efforts to turn blighted properties in to community assets.
