The Land Bank works to assess, cleanup and encourage redevelopment of Brownfield sites.

The Land Bank and the Genesee County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority (GCBRA), together, have secured millions of dollars in Brownfield funds to eliminate blight and improve abandoned and tax foreclosed properties in Genesee County. Demolishing blighted structures and cleaning up Brownfield sites helps to restore value to urban land and speed up the process of returning tax foreclosed, contaminated and abandoned properties to productive use.

Brownfield Site Assessment Assistance Application

The Genesee County Land Bank Authority (GCLBA) is the recipient of a 2014-2017 Brownfield Assessment grant from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Assessment Grants provide funding for developing inventories of brownfields, prioritizing sites, conducting community involvement activities, conducting site assessments and cleanup planning related to brownfield sites. Assessment Grant funds may not be used to conduct cleanups. Interested parties can request potential Brownfield funding assistance at redevelopment projects within Genesee County. Project funding will be considered by the GCLBA on a case-by-case basis, considering the merits of the proposed project and specific goals of the grant funding. Note that a minimum 50% cost share will be required for most projects.
