New York's 2017/18 Budget has Good News for BOA Communities
Governor Cuomo's proposed spending for the Brownfield Opportunity Areas (BOA) program was agreed to by the Legislature; $2 million for the BOA program will again be funded through the Environmental Protection Fund.
NPCR is a valuable resource for municipalities and non-profit organizations invested in stakeholder-driven revitalization of brownfields in their communities. A not-for-profit organization, NPCR advances the renewal of New York’s low and moderate income neighborhoods and communities of color through the redevelopment of brownfield sites. Through its roundtables, forums, and summits, NPCR facilitates discussions on the challenges communities face in their revitalization efforts. NPCR translates those discussions into advocacy for legislation, policies, and programs that advance community-identified needs and priorities, particularly on behalf of those communities burdened with poverty and multiple brownfield sites.
