Whatever your sector, whatever your need, we will develop solutions that will help your business or organization prosper in New York City. Our programs and business solutions are not limited to the resources NYCEDC has to offer. We can introduce your business to other agencies, organizations, and strategic partnerships that can help your business succeed and grow in NYC.

Innovative Financing Solutions

We have helped hundreds of companies undertake capital expansion and reduce operating costs. There are numerous financing programs available to companies of all types. We can work with you to provide estimates on the value of the benefits to your business and offer guidance through the application process.

We facilitate the use of the New Markets Tax Credit program for the financing of projects in low-income communities through NYC Neighborhood Capital Corporation and strategic collaborations with a number of national CDEs. NYCEDC works to source capital for NMTC-eligible projects in order to bring new investment into low income communities.

Accessing Incentives

We can help your business identify tax credits and other financial assistance programs, estimate the value of those benefits to your business, and provide guidance on how to apply for these programs. Additionally, we can help businesses undertaking larger projects access discretionary tax incentives through the New York City Industrial Development Agency (NYCIDA) and Build NYC Resource Corporation (Build NYC).

Over the last decade, NYCIDA has closed more than 409 transactions, leveraging discretionary incentives to induce more than $22.3 billion in private investment and to retain or create more than 121,800 jobs. NYCIDA has helped hundreds of companies undertake capital projects, expand their existing operations, or relocate to New York City through the reduction or deferral of various transaction and operating costs.

Build NYC assists qualified institutions and other entities in obtaining tax-exempt and taxable bond financing to support building, expanding or upgrading facilities. Build NYC provides critical financing options to the City’s nonprofit organizations and other entities, and has closed 83 transactions, totaling approximately $2 billion in private investment.

Real Estate Advisory Services

Whether your business is expanding in or relocating to New York City, we can assist in identifying suitable space or development parcels for your business. We can help your business compare the competitive advantages of different locations throughout the city and identify available benefits and resources specific to each neighborhood.
