Ramsey County Community and Economic Development/Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) has established an Environmental Response Fund to help project partners clean-up contaminated properties throughout the county. Funds are generated by a mortgage registry and deed tax of .0001 percent of the principal amount of financings. Twenty two (22) clean-up projects have received ERF funding to date totaling $5.7M and about 200 acres.
Proposals are typically accepted in May and November and coordinated with MN Department of Employment and Economic Development and Metropolitan Council Brownfield programs. The next proposal deadline for clean-up of contaminated soil is Friday, May 1, 2015 at 4:30 p.m.
