Brownfield Redevelopment Authority

Redeveloping brownfields reduces urban sprawl into greenfield areas by encouraging the reuse of established commercial, industrial and residential properties where public services already exist. To encourage brownfield redevelopment, the Brownfield Redevelopment Financing Act,  1996 PA 381, as amended , allows local units of government to establish one or more Brownfield Redevelopment Authorities (BRAs) to identify and plan for reuse of brownfield properties. 2023 PA 90 expands the definition of "eligible activity" to include "housing development activity."

BRAs can adopt brownfield plans, which identify the eligible activities to be conducted on an eligible property, and provide for the use of tax increment financing to capture property taxes to reimburse the costs of the eligible activities. The property owner may also apply for a Single Business Tax Brownfield Redevelopment Credit for eligible investments made at an eligible property if included in a brownfield plan adopted under Act 381.
