The NYC Mayor’s Office of Environmental Remediation (OER) designs and implements the City’s brownfield cleanup and redevelopment initiatives. The NYC Voluntary Cleanup Program (NYC VCP), the nation’s first municipally-run cleanup program, offers remedial oversight and liability protection to property owners and developers of over 100 sites each year. Brownfields are sites where redevelopment is complicated by the presence of contamination, such as from prior site uses, historic fill, or chemical spills. OER also supports Community Brownfield Planning Areas and administers the Brownfield Incentive Grant (BIG) program, which provides funding for the investigation and cleanup of brownfield sites as well as grants to community-based organizations conducting planning around brownfields.
