Brownfield Loan Program

Brownfield Loan Program

Information and Loan Application Documents


The Ohio Water Development Authority Board created the Brownfield Loan Program in 1995. Through this program, OWDA can provide financial assistance for the undertaking of any “voluntary action” and thereby providing funding for the remediation of contaminated property, through direct loans.

For more details, see the Brownfield Loan Program Guidelines. Please note that projects must be constructed using prevailing wage.    

Applications are accepted on an open cycle.  OWDA will begin to review a project after a complete application has been received.  Your application will be presented to the OWDA Board for approval after it has been determined that the applicant has the ability to repay the loan.
