2019 Blight Remediation Grant

Blight Remediation Grant Program

Demolition and Clearance Projects


The County of Lehigh is currently requesting applications for its Blight Remediation Grant Program for demolition and clearance projects.


Municipalities and municipal authorities in Lehigh County(with the exception of the cities of Allentown and Bethlehem) may request funding for demolition of buildings and improvements, removal of rubble and debris after demolition, removal of environmental contaminants, and to make non-hazardous, or to move structures to other sites.  Funds may also be used for legal and processing fees, contracting with a third- party to provide the desired demolition and clearance services on their behalf.


Applicants must provide a minimum of 25% cash match.
