Brownfield Opportunity Areas spur economic growth and quality of life

The Brownfield Opportunity Areas (BOA) Program provides resources to New York communities to establish effective revitalization strategies that return dormant and blighted parcels into productive, catalytic properties. Our goal is to work in partnership with local communities and organizations to develop and realize a community vision for redevelopment and community revitalization.
