Cuomo launched two major economic development programs – the Upstate Revitalization Initiative and Round V of the Regional Economic Development Councils – officially kicking off the 2015 competitions for $1.5 billion and up to $750 million in state economic development resources, respectively.

The New York State Environmental Facility Corporation’s Green Innovation Grant Program (GIGP) will be available to support green infrastructure projects that improve stormwater quality and demonstrate innovative design across the state.
