The CALReUSE Remediation Program is funded by Proposition 1C, the Housing and Energy Shelter Trust Fund Act of 2006. The Program finances brownfield cleanup that promotes infill residential and mixed-use development, consistent with regional and local land use plans. Grants and loans are available up to $5 million for eligible projects. For further information, please refer to the Remediation Program Summary.
The CALReUSE Remediation Program restores the environment and reduces blight while targeting projects which transform brownfields into affordable housing. Since 2008, CALReUSE Remediation Program funding has resulted in the completion of 1,976 housing units amongst nineteen projects. Remarkably, 1,544, or 78%, of the units are affordable for-sale or rental units. Eleven of the projects are transit-oriented and five projects are mixed-use. Nine projects offer residents supportive services such as childcare, health enhancement, and support for employment. For the nineteen completed projects, each CALReUSE Remediation dollar has been accompanied by $31.03 in other funds toward total development costs. The Program anticipates producing a total of 6,229 housing units, including 3,006 for-sale or rental affordable units, once all projects are completed.
