DEED’s Contamination Cleanup and Investigation Grants Program has been a major success since it was created in 1993, awarding nearly $171 million statewide to help communities pay for cleaning up sites polluted with soil and groundwater contamination.  Since then, thousands of acres of formerly polluted land have been redeveloped in Minnesota, resulting in more than 47,000 new or retained jobs and $114 million in local tax base growth.

The program’s 2017 annual report is now available, featuring background on the program, updated statistics, the grant process and case studies about successful projects in Brooklyn Center, Fridley, Mankato and Duluth.

If you’d like to learn more, read the Contamination Cleanup and Investigation Grants Program annual report on the DEED website.
