The Brownfield Redevelopment Authority (BRA) project portal is open for reporting data for 2022. All BRAs must use the reporting portal to report data entered in 2022.
Brownfield Redevelopment Authorities are required by law to report Act 381 Brownfield Tax Increment Financing to the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC). Reporting data is due no later than August 31, 2023 via the online portal. BRAs are not considered compliant until MEDC Brownfield Staff have reviewed and approved all reported data.
Brownfields are defined as properties that are contaminated (facility), blighted, functionally obsolete, or are historic properties. Regardless of their classification, all brownfield properties face economic impediments to reuse and redevelopment.Download the Brownfield TIF Fact Sheet
Through the Brownfield Redevelopment Financing Act, Brownfield TIF allows applicable taxing jurisdictions to receive property taxes on the property at the current level and capture the incremental increase in tax revenue resulting from a redevelopment project. Under a MSF approved Work Plan or Combined Plan, projects can seek reimbursement from state and local property taxes for eligible non-environmental activities. Projects can also seek reimbursement from state and local property taxes for eligible environmental activities through submission of a Work Plan or Combined Plan to the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy.
A draft Work Plan is submitted for initial evaluation and project scoping to either the Community Assistance Team or Business Development Manager.
