Brownfield Program

The Tulsa Brownfield Program was established in 1990 with a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency for the assessment of potential brownfield properties. The program includes a local Revolving Loan Fund to support brownfield clean up activities on private property. A brochure on the Brownfield Program Revolving Loan Fund is available for additional information and guidance.
