New York City Economic Development Corporation: Building Strong Neighborhoods, Creating Good Jobs

We are New Yorkers, working for New Yorkers. We live here, we work here, we send our kids to neighborhood schools, and we care about the communities that we call home. That’s why every project and initiative we do puts the needs of people and communities first: we’re investing in the good of the community, because it’s our community too.

As a mission-driven, nonprofit organization that creates shared prosperity across New York City, our work is organized around four main areas of focus:

  1. Investing in neighborhoods to address longstanding community needs
  2. Building a more sustainable city to meet the challenges of climate change
  3. Creating workforce development opportunities to help New Yorkers succeed in 21st century industries
  4. Advancing the growth of both startups and established companies to ensure New York City’s competitive edge

Our projects and initiatives are about serving New Yorkers. We are working with and for communities through every step of the economic development process—bringing emerging industries to the five boroughs; creating the spaces and facilities they need to thrive and create jobs; giving New Yorkers the tools and training to succeed in those jobs; and investing in the public infrastructure and neighborhood development projects that make this city a great place to live, work, and do business.

Ultimately, we strive to create a sustainable and resilient future, with shared prosperity and opportunity for all New Yorkers.
