The Brownfields Economic Development Initiative is administered by the Office of Economic Development under the Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development. The Office of Economic Development administers HUD's ongoing grant programs to assist local governments, nonprofit organizations and the private sector in economic development efforts.
The Brownfields Economic Development Initiative (BEDI) was enacted in section 108(q) of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. Eligible applicants include units of general local government eligible for assistance under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, as well as urban counties that are eligible under the CDBG program. Each unit of general local government or CDBG-eligible urban county must use its BEDI award to enhance the security of a loan guaranteed by HUD under section 108 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, for the same project, or to improve the viability of a project financed with the section 108-guaranteed loan. The Brownfields Economic Development Initiative provides each grantee up to $2,000,000 for the redevelopment of abandoned, idled or underutilized industrial or commercial facilities where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination.
The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 14.246.
