The Brownfield Opportunity Areas Program, made possible by the Superfund/Brownfield law in October 2003, provides municipalities and community based organizations with assistance, up to 90 percent of the eligible project costs, to complete revitalization plans and implementation strategies for areas or communities affected by the presence of brownfield sites, and site assessments for strategic brownfield sites. The program in New York is administered the Department of State
with guidance from the Department of Environmental Conservation
The Town of Tonawanda has qualified a region as a Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) and is participating in the program stages. Please learn more
