When applicants are accepted into the NY Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP), they enter into a Brownfield Cleanup Agreement (BCA). In addition to establishing the rights and obligations of the applicant, the BCA describes the brownfield site and identifies the parties who will be eligible to claim the BCP tax credits.
If an applicant changes its name or adds a new investor or partner that wants to be able to directly claim the BCP tax credits, the BCA needs to be amended to reflect the name change or new party. DEC recently started using a new BCA amendment form. A BCA amendment is also required if there is a significant change to the BCP site. The new form is available here.
