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.

Florida Brownfields Program Celebrates its 20th anniversary/FDEP receives record-breaking number of VCTC tax credit applications

Wednesday, February 22, 2017

In what is the 20th anniversary of the Florida Brownfields Program, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection ("FDEP") received a record-breaking number of Voluntary Cleanup Tax Credit ("VCTC") applications for voluntary environmental cleanup work performed at Brownfield redevelopment and other eligible sites across Florida.

For the 2016 calendar year, a record 133 VCTC applications were submitted for a total requested amount of $14.8 million dollars.  This extraordinary level of participation demonstrates strong participation in Florida’s Brownfield and VCTC programs.  Based on FDEP's review of the VCTC applications, as of July 2017, absent a change in state funding, the VCTC program would be expected to have a backlog of over $15 million dollars. With annual statutory funding remaining at the $5 million limit, VCTC applicants could face a 3-year wait for VCTC tax credit issuance.
