East New York IBZ Plan 

The East New York IBZ Plan is a comprehensive approach to strengthening the historic industrial hub and securing its future as a thriving employment center and contributor to the local economy of East New York and Brownsville.

  • Investing in critical infrastructure to improve the business environment 
  • Increasing business services and local job opportunities to better connect the East New York IBZ with surrounding communities
