The Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) is a comprehensive approach to boosting local economies by transforming communities into vibrant neighborhoods where the next generation of New Yorkers will want to live, work, and raise a family. In its fifth year, the program is investing $200 million across the state, or $20 million in each region. The downtown districts that receive the funding are chosen by each of the State's 10 Regional Economic Development Councils (REDCs).


Endicott is one of the two winners in the Southern Tier region, and has been awarded $10M towards improvements that will help transform the downtown area. With technical assistance provided by the State and guidance from a local planning committee and the public, Endicott will develop a Strategic Investment Plan that identifies specific projects that align with a unique vision for revitalization of the downtown area. This website contains all the information, documents and announcements about the DRI as they become available throughout the process.
