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.
For more information, please contact Wes Wyche, Environmental Services Manager, at (318) 673-6072 or Wes Wyche.

In 2013, the City of Shreveport was awarded an Area Wide Planning Grant from the EPA. Please visit the following link: Cross Bayou Corridor.
