Monthly Subsidy Alerts
To help promote the monthly public hearings at the New York City Industrial Development Agency and other agencies that allocate economic development subsidies, GJNY created a monthly email “subsidy alert”. The email has information about upcoming hearings of subsidized development proposals as well as news about current projects. On this page you will find a history of public hearing notices dating back to 2002.
In addition to our monthly listserve, as of 2010 you can sign up to receive public hearing notices directly from the Industrial Development Agency.
Thanks to increased transparency measures at the IDA, all current project applications and cost/benefit analyses are available to the public twelve calendar days before the hearing. Project materials are posted on the website of the New York City Industrial Development Agency and on the GJNY website when they become available. If you need a hard copy of the materials or plan to make a statement at the hearing, please contact the public records access officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212-312-3598.
Also, thanks to improved transparency efforts at the IDA, public hearings and board meetings are now available as streaming audiocasts for three days following each meeting. Audiocasts are found on the IDA Public Hearing page of the EDC website.

GJNY takes a close look at the proposed subsidy package--worth nearly $130 million--for Fresh Direct to relocate to the South Bronx. In early 2012, Fresh Direct started a bidding war between New York City and New Jersey officials when it threatened to leave its current home in Long Island City, Queens.
