Industrial Revitalization Fund (IRF)


The Industrial Revitalization Fund (IRF) leverages local and private resources to achieve market-driven redevelopment of vacant and deteriorated industrial and commercial properties. The program is targeted toward vacant non-residential structures whose poor condition creates physical and economic blight to the surrounding area in which the structure is located. Eligible properties include those formerly used for manufacturing, warehousing, mining, transportation and power production, as well as large-scale white elephant structures, such as department stores, theaters, hotels and shopping centers. Structures whose proposed end use will be solely residential are not eligible.

The Industrial Revitalization Fund has received additional support through an appropriation of American Rescue Plan Act funding. A round of planning grants will open on January 5th, 2022 and close on February 11th, 2022. Further details about the grant (including eligibility and requirements) can be found here or in the link under the resources tab.
