Upstate Revitalization Initiative


The next meeting is on Upstate Revitalization Initiative. It is scheduled for Thursday, February 4, 2016 from 10am to 12pm at the University Downtown Center. 

Binghamton University and the Southern Tier are among the winners in the Upstate Revitalization Initiative (URI), a competition among seven upstate regions for millions of dollars in funding to support projects identified by the Regional Economic Development Councils. Three of the seven regions deemed to have made the most compelling proposals for the funding have been designated “Best Plan Awardees” – including the Southern Tier – and each will receive $500 million.

Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger co-chairs the Southern Tier Regional Economic Development Council. Calling this a historic day for Upstate New York, Stenger said he is delighted that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York state’s Strategic Implementation Assessment Team have identified our region as one of the top programs for the Upstate Revitalization Initiative.

This event is hosted by SUNY BEST.
