New York's BCP is designed is to encourage private-sector cleanups of brownfields and promote their redevelopment as a means to revitalize economically blighted communities. The BCP is an alternative to "greenfield" (land not previously developed or contaminated) development and is intended to remove some of the barriers to, and provide tax incentives for, the redevelopment of brownfields.
Since its inception in 2003, the BCP has catalyzed the cleanup of more than 300 contaminated sites statewide and incentivized redevelopment.
There are more than 350 active sites in the BCP.
Additional information on New York state's Brownfield Cleanup Program is available at DEC's website, http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/8450.html.
