JACKSON, MI -- A $300,000 grant from the federal government may be able to help small businesses in Jackson with redevelopment.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded Jackson County with a Brownfield Assessment grant to help sites that have potential for redevelopment, the Enterprise Group of Jackson County announced Monday.
Grants related to brownfields, a term used for property available for redevelopment after the cleanup of contaminants, blight or other similar concerns, often support site surveys or demolition. For example, Popeyes on West Avenue used a brownfield plan from Jackson to redevelop the property in 2019. The site was previously a Speedway gas station.
Interested groups should contact Enterprise Group's Alex Masten at firstname.lastname@example.org or 517-262-4799.
