Brownfield Redevelopment Program

What are Brownfields?

“Brownfields” are abandoned, idled, or underused industrial or commercial properties with real or perceived environmental contamination. 

What does the Brownfields Program do?

Supported by grants from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Regional Planning Commission’s (RPC’s) Brownfield Redevelopment Program provides technical guidance and environmental assessments to facilitate the redevelopment of Brownfield sites in Southeast Louisiana. Under the Brownfields Program, these properties will be converted from community liabilities into community assets.
