Funding will bring jobs, jobs and more jobs to New York

ALBANY, N.Y. — More than $181 million in economic development funding approved by Empire State Development will create 1,524 jobs around the state. The funding also will help to retain 2,009 existing jobs statewide.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced that more than $181 million in economic development funding has been approved for 24 projects that are spurring growth and opportunity in nine regions of the state. The funding was approved by Empire State Development’s board of directors. This funding will also leverage more than $5 billion in private assets and other public funding to support local businesses and projects that are building a strong foundation for future economic growth and job creation.

“This funding is part of this administration’s ongoing efforts to create new opportunities for companies and workers all across New York,” Cuomo said. “By investing in these projects, we are jumpstarting local development priorities, attracting new businesses that create jobs, and helping to rebuild New York’s economy.”
