County-Wide Shared Services Initiative
Reducing Property Taxes and Lowering Costs of Local Government
The County-Wide Shared Services Initiative (CWSSI) generates property tax savings by enabling collaboration between local governments across the state.
The CWSSI expands on New York State’s ongoing commitment to reduce property taxes and modernize local government services by fostering new shared services and enhancing the existing collaborations already in place.
The Department of State offers several comprehensive programs to incentivize and aiding local government efficiencies.
