The City of New York has its own Voluntary Cleanup Program (“NYC VCP”). The unique program is working well, particularly for parcels that may not be the right “fit” for New York State’s Brownfield Cleanup Program. The program delivers real benefits for brownfield redevelopment in New York City, including liability releases and financial assistance. The NYC VCP is managed by the New York City Mayor’s Office of Environmental Remediation (“OER”), which is directed by Daniel C. Walsh.

OER has scheduled training for consultants looking for certification as an OER Certified Brownfield Professional. You can register for this December 17th program at
