Joseph Koncelik, Tucker Ellis

In July 2021, Ohio’s 2022-2023 budget allocated $500 million in new brownfield funding under various development programs: $350 million for the investigation, cleanup, and revitalization of brownfield sites and another $150 million for the demolition of vacant or abandoned commercial or residential buildings.

The Ohio Department of Development (ODOD) will administer the funding and is charged with adopting rules governing eligibility. ODOD released the program guidelines for both the Brownfield Program and Demolition Program on December 7.
