Soil remediation is a common issue for launch ready projects, and PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) soil contamination and remediation will not disqualify you from applying for BHCIP Launch Ready or CCE funding. Please keep in mind that PFAS remediation is often very expensive, and your application for BHCIP or CCE Capital Expansion grants should include these remediation costs in your development budget.The BHCIP/CCE application includes a budget template with several line items for soils testing (in due diligence) and soil remediation (in construction). The completed budget template for your application must incorporate actual bids or estimated costs of all your site needs, including costs of PFAS soil remediation.
