Mending broken real estate to promote job creation, homeownership, and equitable development throughout Hamilton County
How We Make Real Estate Work

With tools, resources, and experience, The Port is pioneering new models of real estate equity, developing new solutions - and contributing to the story of our region's renaissance. For new, job-creating advanced manufacturing. For neighborhood-serving business districts. For a range of affordable housing options.
For everyone in our region.
