UST Fund Background
On August 30, 1997, Governor Whitman signed the law establishing the Petroleum Underground Storage Tank Remediation, Upgrade and Closure Fund (UST Fund) within the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) and administered jointly with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).
The UST Fund provides loans and grants to eligible owners and operators of regulated and non-regulated petroleum underground storage tanks to help finance project costs for the upgrade and closure of State regulated underground storage tanks and remediation of discharges from regulated and non-regulated underground storage tanks. The UST Fund was amended in 2003, 2006, 2007 and 2009.
