The following are summaries of some of the successful brownfield projects that have been achieved using state and/or federal assistance, including grants and loans, as well as Comfort and Site Status Letters.
The Program is always looking to highlight successful local redevelopment projects. Stakeholders can learn from each other, so share your stories and allow the Program to be a vehicle on that road to success!! To submit a brownfield success story, please contact

A former Studebaker facility has been redeveloped into a new transfer/recycling station in South Bend, referred to as Green Tech Recycling (Green Tech). This is a great example of how thinking green for the environment can bring cost savings, new jobs, and community enrichment.
After a long industrial past, the former Studebaker Plant 8 facility sat vacant for 12 years. Mother Earth LLC (Mother Earth) then acquired the property in 2005 and invested $4 million for its demolition, remediation, and redevelopment. The Indiana Brownfields Program provided $45,123 in assessment and remediation grants to Saint Joseph County for the project, and the City of South Bend provided $67,000 in funding from a brownfield assessment grant that it received from the U.S. EPA.
