Governor Cuomo Announces $50 Million Available For Nonprofit Infrastructure Improvements During Housing, Community, and Faith Based Development Conference in Utica

Funding Available for Capital Projects from the Governor’s $50 Million Nonprofit Infrastructure Capital Investment Program

Conference Series Kicks Off in Utica to Encourage More Housing, Increase Access to Services, and Revitalize Neighborhoods Throughout the Mohawk Valley

Governor Cuomo announced that $50 million is available through the Governor’s Nonprofit Infrastructure Capital Investment Program to support projects that improve the quality, efficiency, and accessibility of programs that provide crucial human services to millions of New Yorkers each year. 

"Nonprofit organizations play an invaluable role in providing critical services for countless New Yorkers and we must do all we can to make sure that aging infrastructure does not stand in the way of their admirable work," Governor Cuomo said. "This funding does just that by helping these organizations complete capital projects that further their ability to deliver essential services."

As part of Governor Cuomo's 2015-16 Opportunity Agenda, the Nonprofit Infrastructure Capital Investment Program provides funding critical for the financing of construction projects that include renovation or expansion of program space, accessibility renovations, energy efficiency modifications, and other technology projects. The program is being administered by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York and the funding application will be available on New York State's Grants Gateway website. All interested nonprofits must submit completed applications by Wednesday, December 23, 2015.
