When determining what to apply for keep in mind that discretionary Capital requests are designated for the purpose of construction and/or renovation projects and are separate from discretionary expense requests, which cover programming. City Capital funding is awarded with significant restrictions and many not-for-profit organizations are not eligible for capital funding.

 

Community-based organizations are the lifeblood of my district and I thank you for all of the phenomenal work you do to improve our community and make New York the most dynamic city in the world in which to live, work, and raise a family.

 

I will host a virtual FY22 Budget Workshop on Thursday, Jan 28 (register online), with additional information regarding the FY22 funding application process. In the meantime, should you have any problems accessing the budget applications on the city council website, want to schedule a meeting with my budget staff (we request meetings for all capital applications), have additional questions regarding the process, or if your community-based organization did not receive this information in an email please email my Legislative and Budget Director, Isa Cortez, at icortez@council.nyc.gov
