The Missouri Brownfield Redevelopment Program is administered by the Missouri Department of Economic Development and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. The program's purpose is to provide incentives for redeveloping and revitalizing "environmentally challenged" properties. Financial incentives are available through the Missouri Department of Economic Development, while the Missouri Department of Natural Resources oversees site cleanup. Missouri has several state Brownfields including the St. Louis Arena, Martin Luther King business park and Kansas City Riverfront Development. 

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources' Brownfields/ Voluntary Cleanup Program (BVCP) oversees the cleanup of all brownfield redevelopment sites in Missouri, whether state or federally funded. At first glance, many may believe brownfields are a blight on a community's economy and its spirit, however, the department found they are actually hidden treasures. The department began an initiative to evaluate brownfields redeveloped in Missouri. After studying the projects completed under the department’s oversight, the department found the redevelopments resulted in 11,053 new jobs and over $2.2 billion in investments. For more information about the study, review the department's Hidden Treasures Rural Roots report.
