Central New York, Mid-Hudson, Finger Lakes, Mohawk Valley and New York City Named 'Top Performers' - Awarded $431 Million in Total Funding Long Island, Capital Region, Western New York, Southern Tier and North Country Receive $331 Million in 'Regional Council' Awards Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that more than $763 million in economic and community development funding has been awarded through Round VIII of the Regional Economic Development Council initiative. Established in 2011 as a centerpiece of the Governor's strategy to jumpstart the economy and create jobs, the Regional Councils replaced the state's old top-down approach to economic development with one that is community-based and performance-driven. The initiative empowers communities, business and academic leaders, as well as members of the public in each region of the state, to develop strategic plans specifically tailored to their region's unique strengths and resources to create jobs, improve quality of life and grow the economy. More information on the 2018 Regional Economic Development Council Awards is available here. "Over the last eight years, we have implemented a vision to move New York State's economy forward by allowing communities to make strategic investments to help grow their local economies and reenergize and develop their unique regions," Governor Cuomo said. "Regional-based economic development is vital for maintaining New York's thriving, prosperous economy. I congratulate all of the winners of this year's REDC awards and look forward to working together to build a stronger New York for generations to come." Read the full press release here.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced $4.2 million in funding from the first round the Western New York Workforce Development Challenge has been awarded to six local not-for-profit organizations. The program will ensure the region's workforce pipeline meets industry demands in sectors such as advanced manufacturing, health and life sciences, and energy. The grants will be administered by the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo and Empire State Development, the state's economic development agency. "Workforce development is critical to any thriving economy, and this funding will provide local not-for-profits the resources they need to train workers in the jobs of the future," Governor Cuomo said."With these investments, we are providing New Yorkers with the skills necessary to meet the demands of a 21st century economy and at the same time encouraging businesses to continue investing in Western New York." "Investing in our workforce is essential for continued growth in Buffalo and Western New York," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, who made today's announcement. "In order to keep up with the needs of the labor market, New York must lead the way to train workers in advanced manufacturing, health care, and energy to close the skills gap and create a pipeline of talent for employers. The Workforce Development Challenge Awards will target resources to ensure training is available across Western New York for good-paying jobs that will move our economy forward."

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that Schenectady-based Redburn Development Partners will invest at least $78 million to transform seven properties in the heart of downtown Albany. The transformative project involves the renovation and rehabilitation of seven outdated and neglected properties, representing more than 450,000 square feet of space, to create new mixed-income apartments, commercial and retail space, and much-needed parking. "The City of Albany is growing and thriving, and this significant investment will only further attract new businesses and residents to the area," Governor Cuomo said. "The renovation of these seven neglected properties will continue the city's downtown revitalization by creating new jobs and mixed-income housing that will strengthen the area for generations to come." "Redburn Development has renovated vacant buildings in downtown Schenectady, fostering growth and economic opportunity over the last several years," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "This significant investment by Redburn will transform seven abandoned properties bringing new life to the area of downtown Albany with plans for apartments and commercial and retail space. I was proud to announce Albany as a Downtown Revitalization Initiative award winner earlier this year, and this additional state investment will further our efforts to grow downtown and strengthen the economy of the entire Capital Region."

Empire State Development (ESD) today announced that Brookhaven National Laboratory, a cutting-edge research facility on Long Island, broke ground on a new building to house two new electron microscopes. Both the building and the microscopes were funded by $15 million from ESD through the Transformative Investment Program. The laboratory, which was founded in 1947, employs 2,500 scientists and support staff and hosts more than 4,000 visiting researchers annually. Empire State Development President, CEO and Commissioner Howard Zemsky said, “Brookhaven National Laboratory has been on the cutting edge of innovation for more than seven decades – and this investment will help ensure that remains true. New Yorkers can be proud this award-winning research institution is curing diseases, developing new technologies, and increasing our understanding of the world around us, and ESD is proud to support that mission.” The two new microscopes will be part of Brookhaven’s Laboratory for BioMolecular Structure, which will dramatically accelerate our understanding of underlying diseases – knowledge that will lead to faster and more effective treatments. Brookhaven Lab Director Doon Gibbs said, “Cryo-electron microscopy can significantly accelerate scientists’ understanding of molecular structures and processes, leading to positive impacts in understanding disease and the discovery of new drugs. We thank NY State for its continued strong support of Brookhaven Lab and this new Laboratory for BioMolecular Structure, which will advance these efforts and boost the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries on Long Island and in NY State.” Brookhaven National Laboratory was opened in 1947, on the former site of the U.S. military’s Camp Upton. Research at Brookhaven has been honored by seven Nobel Prizes, in addition to National Medals of Science, Enrico Fermi Awards, Wolf Foundation Prizes, and dozens of R&D 100 Awards – among many others. Scientists at Brookhaven have discovered subatomic particles and new forms of matter, while research has led to life-saving medical imaging techniques that revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone said, “This state investment will support thousands of jobs and create a culture of innovation right here in Suffolk County. I thank Governor Cuomo and Empire State Development for championing Brookhaven National Laboratory as a model for how cutting-edge scientific research can launch new industries and life-saving cures.” Suffolk County Legislator Al Krupski, whose district includes Brookhaven National Lab and who is a member of the lab’s Community Advisory Council, said, “This funding will not only benefit Suffolk County and the lab, but medical science as well. BNL hosts some of the most brilliant scientists and researchers in the world and the institution is most deserving of this funding which will help advance their vitally important work.” About Empire State Development Empire State Development (ESD) is New York’s chief economic development agency (www.esd.ny.gov).
