The City of Shreveport is dedicated to the redevelopment of “Brownfields” sites (properties that have been unused or underutilized over the years due to actual or perceived environmental contamination). We administer a Brownfields revolving loan fund which can assist with the cleanup of such sites. Non-profits may be eligible for grants instead of loans. We can also work to provide links to other resources that may be available for assessing and/or cleaning up these sites.
