Eligibility Requirements

A site may be eligible if it is located within East Baton Rouge Parish, if the property is abandoned or underutilized, and has real or perceived contamination. Perception of even a minor environmental issue such as asbestos or lead paint is generally sufficient. We are able to partner with an wide range of public, private, and non-profit entities to provide the services offered by the program.

To participate in the Baton Rouge Brownfield Program, you should provide us with information about the property’s current owner, known past uses, the prospective purchaser of the property, any suspected environmental issues, and the redevelopment intent of the project.
