Syracuse seeks community project ideas for federal funding

SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – The City of Syracuse is looking for community ideas after Governor Hochul announced that Syracuse would receive $10 million through the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI ). The DRI is the state’s economic development program and “will enable Syracuse to develop a strategic investment plan to implement key catalytic projects.”

The Syracuse Local Planning Committee (LPC) has announced open calls for proposals for these potential “catalyst projects.” Open calls allow community members to showcase transformative projects on private sites that will bring economic and community benefits.

Project submissions should include capital/construction projects, expansions or business start-ups and renovations of existing buildings on private sites. They should also demonstrate the commitment of private funding sources, show the transformative nature of the project and contain as much information as possible.

Once the project is submitted, the LPC of Syracuse and a team of consultants led by the Epstein Group will work with the sponsors to gather more information, if necessary.

You can find complete information on the eligibility criteria, submission instructions and project submission form in the document below. You can also find more information at Syracuse DRI website.
