The Port was established by the City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County in 2000 with the purpose of promoting economic development in the Cincinnati metropolitan area. Since then, The Port has implemented a broad group of programs, including affordable housing, to cultivate strong communities and a diverse economic base. The Port supports neighborhood, commercial, and industrial development by rehabilitating properties and by offering financial incentives for homeownership, investment, and redevelopment.
