Governor Kathy today launched the enhanced Database of Economic Incentives as part of her ongoing commitment to transparency and making state government work better for New Yorkers. First launched in 2021, the Database of Economic Incentives provides detailed, up-to-date data on economic development projects throughout New York State. The data is updated quarterly, published online and complements the information available on ESD's reports page. New York State’s Database of Economic Incentives is nation-leading in terms of number of programs and projects included, frequency of updates, and the number of data fields provided for each project. The updated database is available here.

“This new database of economic incentives is the latest step my administration is taking to improve transparency and restore New Yorkers’ trust in their government,” Governor Hochul said. “With a new user-friendly interface and up-to-date data on key projects, this new tool will help to shed light on economic developments initiatives throughout the state and make data more accessible to all.”

Empire State Development President, CEO and Commissioner Hope Knight said, “We are always striving for ways to improve transparency, especially around our incentive programs and these new enhancements have made the Database of Economic Incentives not only much more comprehensive, but easier to navigate. We are proud of the continued improvements being made to the database and as a result, we now have one of the largest databases of economic development projects in the nation, with 55 fields of data that presents information in a very user-friendly format.”
