Brownfield Program

Welcome to the Portland Brownfield Program

The Portland Brownfield Program is a resource for property owners, developers, community organizations, and neighbors who are interested in cleaning up brownfields and recovering neighborhood land. We can provide technical and financial support when contamination from past use is a concern.
