Assemblywoman Jean-Pierre: $98.3 Million Economic Development Grant Will Help Transform Local Economy

“I am thrilled that Long Island has been named a ‘Top Performer’ for the fourth time, and will receive a $98.3 million Regional Economic Development Grant. This funding will help build on the excellent progress we’ve already made and will help transform our local economy as we continue to create jobs and attract new businesses that our area needs.

“It is undeniable that the regional councils have transformed New York State’s approach to economic development for the better, increasing transparency and accountability while prioritizing strong projects over politics. I look forward to working with the governor and my colleagues in the Legislature to ensure Long Island continues to get their fair share of economic development money in the years to come.”
