Upstate Revitalization Plans AnnouncedMonday, 05 October 2015
The winning regions to receive millions in economic development money will be announced on Dec. 10, at 10:30 a.m. at the Egg's Hart Theatre in Albany.
The Capital Region Economic Development Council is pleased to present its Upstate Revitalization Initiative (URI) Plan CAPITAL 20.20 ADVANCING THE REGION THROUGH FOCUSED INVESTMENT
In April 2015, Governor Cuomo created an initiative for seven Upstate NY regions to compete for three, one-time, $500 million economic development investments from the State of New York’s URI.
The URI Competition has been an opportunity for the Capital Region to develop data-driven economic development strategies that will have a region-wide impact focusing on revitalizing communities, bolstering workforce development, growing tourism, and improving quality of life.
Our plan highlights our track record of delivering great investment returns as a region, and describes in detail the transformative strategies and initiatives we will pursue—a portfolio that over the next five years will deliver 40,000 new jobs, move 20,000 people out of poverty, and grow our population by 10,000 residents.
