Brownfield Assessment Grant
Brownfield Assessment Grant assists business and property owners and infill developers with overcoming the barriers contamination presents for the redevelopment of underutilized Brownfield sites in Charlotte's distressed business districts and neighborhoods.
Brownfield is a vacant or under-utilized property that may be environmentally contaminated and has redevelopment potential.
Brownfield redevelopment removes blight, increases the tax base, retains and attracts quality businesses and reduces the potential of harm to the community from environmental contamination.

Building owner John Lambert used several city grants including a Brownfield Assessment Grant and Façade Improvement Grant while converting a former service station into restaurant space, now home to Sweet Lew's Barbeque.
"These grants helped us make sense of a challenging economic deal while preserving the building's character. It helped us do something positive that everyone can be proud of." - John Lambert, building owner
