The Office of Environmental Remediation (OER) is responsible for the implementation of the brownfield cleanup and redevelopment initiatives outlined in PlaNYC, the City's comprehensive sustainability plan, to support environmental cleanup and economic redevelopment. In August 2010, Mayor Bloomberg launched the New York City Brownfield Cleanup Program (NYC BCP), the nation's first municipal cleanup program, which offers oversight and liability protection to developers and property owners for sites with light to moderate contamination. OER's Brownfield Incentive Grant (BIG) program provides financial incentives and technical support to developers and community organizations. OER also directs the NYC E-Designation Review Program for Hazardous Materials, Air Quality, and Noise and conducts brownfield educational workshops and outreach activities to support meaningful community engagement in brownfields redevelopment.
