Brownfields Programs

ECD Grant Programs

The City of Wheeling has been actively involved in Brownfields redevelopment for more than a decade.

Brownfields are defined as, "abandoned, idled, or under-used industrial and commercial facilities where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination." This is a comprehensive program that has addressed Brownfields issues in Wheeling.

The City of Wheeling has used the following to facilitate Brownfields redevelopment:

  1. Brownfields Assessment Demonstration Pilot Program, funded by the U.S. EPA, to provide environmental assessment activities on several Brownfields sites in Wheeling.
  2. Brownfields Cleanup Revolving Loan Fund Pilot Program, funded by the U.S. EPA, to provide loans for remediation of contaminated Brownfields in Wheeling.
  3. The CDBG Brownfields program, funded by the Community Development Block Grant program, that has additional financing for eligible Brownfields activities.
  4. The City was also awarded a Brownfields Economic Development Initiative (BEDI) grant by HUD, for the Celeron Plaza redevelopment project in Wheeling.

From the region’s largest trail system, to national schools of excellence, to a reorganized municipal government, the City of Wheeling offers a dynamic environment for you, your family and your business. There are many features that are unique to this area and we are proud of them! Our businesses enjoy the business climate as well with our advanced, motivated work force.
