Learn more about the three regions designated the Upstate Revitalization Initiative Best Plan Awardees.
The URI plans provide a comprehensive view of each region’s economy and target strategies that will lead to transformative changes in the region.
The REDCs will undertake public participation and region wide consensus building efforts. Information about these activities is contained on the web pages of each region.
Focus on Transformational Changes to the Regional Economy
Applications for URI support from the REDCs will be evaluated on their ability to make transformational and sustainable improvements to the regional economy. The REDCs plan must make a compelling case that the region will be able to increase jobs and private sector investment throughout the region.
Complementing the REDC Awards
The regions that do not receive portions of the Upstate Revitalization Initiative will be considered for the majority of this year’s $750 million in REDC Awards. With fewer regions competing for the majority of these funds, each region will be positioned to receive far more funding than in years past. http://www.regionalcouncils.ny.gov
