Environmental Technical Assistance

Indiana Brownfields ProgramThe Indiana Brownfields Program performs environmental technical oversight and review for all projects receiving financial or legal assistance, as well as projects receiving U.S. EPA brownfield grants.

The Indiana Brownfields Program utilizes the Indiana Department of Environmental Management IDEM Remediation Closure Guide (RCG) formerly the Risk Integrated System of Closure (RISC) guidance, which is designed to provide consistent application of risk-based closure policies by IDEM and provides flexibility to achieve a balance between environmental protection and economic development. Applying RCG allows the opportunity for an Indiana Brownfields Program site to achieve closure or make a seamless transition to or from  IDEM remediation programs.

Indiana Brownfields Program project managers work with the Program's General Counsel to provide letters addressing liability issues and IDEM's position on the necessity of a response action at a property. For more information, visit our legal assistance page. Staff also works with legal counsel to draft environmental restrictive covenants as part of the Indiana Brownfields Program's technical and legal assistance.

For more information about the Program's environmental technical assistance, please contact Kyle Hendrix, Redevelopment Coordinator, at (317) 234-4860 or lhendrix@ifa.in.gov.
