BEDI is designed to provide assistance in the redevelopment of abandoned, idled and underused industrial and commercial properties where expansion and redevelopment is hindered by existing or potential environmental contamination.
BEDI grant funds are used in economic development projects and increase the economic opportunities for those with low-and moderate-incomes. BEDI assists in the creation or retention of businesses and jobs, as well as helping to increase the local tax base. In 2006, HUD awarded $10 million in BEDI grants, with a maximum cap of $1 million per award. For more information, please visit HUD Economic Development Programs and also
