Brownfield Redevelopment Authority

The City of Muskegon Brownfield Redevelopment Authority provides financial incentives for economic development projects within the City of Muskegon where environmental contamination, blight, or functional obsolescence create an impediment to redevelopment of property.

Inclusion of a project in the Muskegon Brownfield Plan can result in certain eligible activities being financed through tax increment financing or through providing the developer, business owner, and/or lessee with an opportunity to earn a Michigan Single Business Tax credit based on the investment in the property. Below are links to applications and other sources of information on Brownfields.
