Financial Assistance HDSRF


Hazardous Discharge Site Remediation Fund
(N.J.S.A. 58:10B-4)

HDSRF grants and loans are available to public entities, private entities, and non-profit organizations (as described in section 501(c)(3) of the federal internal revenue code) that perform a remediation pursuant to DEP's Site Remediation Program requirements.

The HDSRF was established in July 1993 to provide funding to public and qualifying private entities for the remediation of a suspected or known discharge of a hazardous substance or hazardous waste. The HDSRF is funded through a constitutionally-dedicated portion of the New Jersey Corporate Business Tax, and is administered through a partnership between the DEP and the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA). The DEP evaluates an applicant's preliminary eligibility requirements, and the estimated remediation costs. Upon the DEP’s recommendation for funding, the EDA evaluates an applicant's financial status, determines grant and/or loan eligibility and awards funding.

Questions regarding this application should be directed to the HDSRF Coordinator within the Office of Brownfield Reuse at (609) 984-1790. The NJDEP and NJEDA look forward to working with you.

A summary of grants and loans offered through the fund is available here.
