22 NY projects will create, retain thousands of jobs

ALBANY, N.Y. — Empire State Development has approved nearly $17 million in funding for 22 projects that will create and retain thousands of jobs statewide.

The funds will support projects that are directly creating 1,293 new jobs and retaining 1,568 existing New York State jobs – many of which have already been created or retained. This funding will also leverage nearly $200 million in private investments and other public funding to support local businesses and major projects that are building a strong foundation for future economic growth and job creation.

“Through these investments, we are strengthening key industries and supporting a range of companies, projects and initiatives that are generating economic activity in nearly every region of the state,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. “This funding will encourage continued business development and job creation by promoting regionally significant strategies that will pave the way for future growth statewide.”
