About the Program

Because of recent changes enacted by the state, almost all New Jersey homeowners are now eligible to receive funds to upgrade their underground storage tank.

The Petroleum Underground Storage Tank Upgrade Remediation and Closure Fund was first established in 1997, but only applied to tanks that leaked. Money for the fund, administered jointly by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), comes from corporation taxes levied by the state.

On August 2, 2006, Governor Corzine signed legislation that enacted important changes to the fund. The change gives a homeowner the power to be proactive. You can now apply for a grant to upgrade a tank BEFORE it leaks.
