Grants to New York City nonprofit organizations and public schools for infrastructure projects in eligible regions. Funding is intended for a broad range of projects, including but not limited to, real property, moveable property, affordable housing, cultural projects, and permanent enhancement to public school facilities. Projects should benefit the Brooklyn Borough.
These funds are used to make improvements across the Borough by creating new infrastructure, and by improving existing assets. Capital funding can be allocated to parks, streets, schools, hospitals, economic development and affordable housing projects, cultural institutions, and other non-profit organizations.
Grants are available for non-city capital funding and for public schools.
Types of Non-City Projects:
Non-City projects generally fall into several categories. It is important to note that a specific project may fall into multiple categories, and thus necessitate multiple applications.
Project eligibility for Non-City Projects can be found at https://www.brooklyn-usa.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/CAPITAL-FUNDING-FACT-SHEET-FOR-NON-CITY-FUNDING.pdf#page=2.
