The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) can lower the costs of projects with tax incentives and bond financing.

These incentives are administered through two organizations:

Each parts' incentives are described here.

  • A waiver on sales taxes for certain materials.
Eligible businesses and projects include:

  • Businesses building or expanding industrial facilities.
Businesses interested in any or all these incentives should contact the NYCIDA directly.
