  • Round 6 of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative -  the DRI transforms downtown neighborhoods into vibrant centers that offer a high quality of life and become magnets for redevelopment, business growth, job creation and economic and housing diversity
  • NY Forward - a new program that supports a more equitable downtown recovery for New York’s smaller and rural communities, with a focus on hamlets and villages. 

For more information on the above programs, click below:

Applications for both programs are available now!
