The New York City Council
Each year the City Council provides funding for a wide-range of capital projects citywide. In order to streamline the capital process the Council and the Administration have agreed to a set of criteria for the funding of non-city capital projects. These criteria and the guidelines for the submission of capital project are summarized in bullet points as well as in a more comprehensive set of guidelines. As part of the streamlined process all non-city entities requesting capital funding from the City must complete the non-city capital request form. In the past applicants were required to submit hard-copies of all forms to the Council, this year all non-city capital request forms will only need to be uploaded to the Capital Funding Request website. The request form is a writable PDF which you will need to download and complete. Once the application is completed you will need to upload it and all required attachments directly to the website. The Council will not require any additional submissions. It is suggested that you notify the member(s) or delegation(s) of your submission prior to uploading the forms to the website.
The City may, on occasion under certain circumstances, appropriate capital dollars to a not-for-profit organization for a particular capital project serving a defined City purpose, in spite of the fact that the property may not be owned nor leased by the City (a \\\\\\\"Project\\\\\\\"). In such cases, as required by the New York State Constitution, the Project must be operated such that it will continue to serve a City purpose for its entire useful life (which corresponds to the period that the bonds issued by the City to finance the Project remain outstanding). Projects may involve real property or Moveable Property.
