Innovative Financing Solutions

The Strategic Investments Group at NYCEDC has helped hundreds of companies and organizations undertake capital expansions and reducetheir operating costs through the use of tax-incentives, bond financing and other programs. There are numerous financing programs available and we can work with you to provide estimates on the value of the benefits to your business and offer guidance throughout 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 many national CDEs. NYCEDC works to source capital for NMTC-eligible projects to bring new investment into low-income communities.

Accessing Incentives and Financing 

NYCEDC 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 your business undertake larger projects and access discretionary tax incentives through the New York City Industrial Development Agency (NYCIDA) and tax-exempt bond financing through Build NYC Resource Corporation (Build NYC).

Over the last decade, NYCIDA has closed more than 400 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 over 100 transactions, totaling approximately $3 billion in private investment.
