Brownfield Assessment Grant Project


The City of Greenville was awarded a Brownfields Assessment grant to inventory, assess, and conduct planning, environmental assessments and community involvement related to brownfields sites within the city limits. Brownfields are underutilized or abandoned properties in which future development is complicated by the perception or presence of environmental contaminants.  In simple terms, a brownfield is property that is either contaminated or that people think might be contaminated. Many sites now considered brownfields once provided economic vitality and jobs to local communities.  The map above shows Brownfield sites that have participated in the grant program.

The Mississippi Redevelopment Act, administered by the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA), is a program designed to encourage economic development on and around environmentally contaminated sites. To promote redevelopment, this act provides incentives to defray the remediation costs associated with cleaning up contaminated property.
