The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) in partnership with New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) today announced the sixth round of Fashion Manufacturing Initiative (FMI) Grant Fund recipients. This round marks the program’s largest investment yet and the highest number of recipients in a single year since its 2013 launch.
NYCEDC and the City are leading the charge to clean and restore the Saw Mill Creek Wetland by selling mitigation credits—a first for a major city like New York. Here’s what you need to know about the process.
New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking a consultant or consultant team to provide final design drawings to support the installation of reliable, dispatchable, and sustainable power to identified critical facilities on the Hunts Point Peninsula in the event of an emergency. The Consultant will develop final design drawings for three project components: School Solar and Storage Installations, Emergency Backup Generation, and a Tri-Generation system to support the Produce Market and Meat Market. The solar plus storage installations will enable Middle School (MS) 424 and Primary School (PS) 48 to serve as public gathering spaces, shelter, or refuge in emergency situations. One main objective of the emergency backup generators is to provide backup power supply to other important citywide food distributors and employers in the Hunts Point Food Distribution Center. Lastly, one main objective of the tri-generation system is to provide reliable and resilient backup power to the Produce and Meat Markets in the Food Distribution Center.
