Welcome to the Florida Brownfields Association

The FBA is a non-profit, volunteer, service organization dedicated to advancing the cleanup and redevelopment of Brownfields in Florida.    Brownfields are sites for which their expansion, redevelopment, or reuse may be complicated by actual or perceived contamination.   Working in cooperation with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the FBA is a group of environmental stakeholders and professionals who provide Brownfields information, assistance, and redevelopment strategies to communities and the public in the interest of cleaning up and redeveloping contaminated properties and revitalizing areas.
