As a bridge between public, private, and philanthropic communities, we redevelop sites and finance projects.

Our diverse suite of programs and initiatives are structured to make significant impact to improve Hamilton County in ways that reduce poverty, improve land value and create well-paying jobs. Property ownership and improvement forms the foundation of our work, creating value from land assets in a way that benefits all.


Our focus in Neighborhood Revitalization, Industrial Revitalization, and Public Finance throughout Hamilton County has created catalytic change.

Neighborhood of Focus

Charles J. Luken

Board Chair - The Port

We have been asked to participate in a project that is consistent with our mission and will bring new energy and hope to this neighborhood, for people who live or one day may live in the West End of our city. The mission of The Port is to revitalize neighborhoods, particularly those that have been neglected over time.

Laura N. Brunner

Building on the strength of what is already here in Greater Cincinnati, we have a redevelopment plan for transforming for prosperity.

Minority Enterprise

Deborah Robb

Director of Homesteading & Urban Redevelopment Corporation (HURC) and Residential Sales

The Port helped establish modern-day standards of project inclusion for the region. It continues as a high priority that minority-owned, women-owned and other historically underutilized businesses have a significant seat at the table.

Platform to greater economic mobility

"We believe the Port’s initiative to attract good-paying advanced manufacturing jobs is a platform to greater economic mobility and will lift vulnerable residents out of poverty. I speak often of the Port’s strategy as one of the most bold our region has seen in a while. "

Ellen M. Katz
President and CEO of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation
