Life Science Initiative Background:
Empire State Development (ESD) is the umbrella organization for New York State's two principal economic development financing entities: The New York State Urban Development Corporation and the Department of Economic Development, which have a singular mission to facilitate business growth and job creation across New York State.
In the Fiscal Year 2018 New York State budget, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo enacted a $620 million Life Science Initiative to spur the growth of a world-class life science research cluster in New York, as well as expand the state's ability to commercialize its academic biomedical research and grow the economy. This multi-faceted Initiative is managed within ESD and includes $100 million to expand the Excelsior Jobs Program Tax Credit to the life science industry, $100 million for a life science research and development refundable tax credit program, and $320 million in other forms of investment. This $320 million includes state capital grants to support the development of wet-lab and innovation space as well as operating support and investment capital for early stage life science companies. ESD's investments will also leverage an additional match of at least $100 million from the private sector.
