NYCEDC is seeking proposals for up to $8 million in City capital to subdivide and modernize existing underutilized private industrial facilities to make them usable for small manufacturing and other industrial uses. Awards will range from $1-$2 million per project, with up to eight eligible projects being selected to receive funding. Winners will be selected based on factors including: the amount of City subsidy needed per square foot; how quickly the space can be modernized and subdivided; the amount of private investment that the respondent will make in the project; and how many jobs will be supported.
