See map of eligible districts here
Empire State Development announced information sessions for the $2 million east side commercial district program, an initiative part of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s East Side Corridor Economic Development Fund. The program will provide up to $50,000 in grant assistance to commercial property owners in four commercial districts with buildings in need of exterior and interior repairs.
Interested, eligible property owners are encouraged to attend upcoming meetings in their districts to learn more about program requirements, the application process, the assistance available through the program, and to meet their districts’ local program administrators (LPA). Information sessions will be held in each district throughout November, with final selection of projects expected in early 2020.
“This funding will help to revive traditional main streets and commercial corridors in underserved neighborhoods through the preservation of historic buildings, funding of capital improvements, and expansion of commercial opportunities in four east side commercial corridors,” said ESD Acting Commissioner and President/CEO-designate Eric Gertler.
