Agency Mission:

To foster the growth of private sector employment and

  investment in the City of Salamanca, and support the economic development of the region.

Eligible Projects: Manufacturing
  Research and Development

Types of Assistance
Seek and Administer State and Federal Funds
  Whenever practical, external funding assistance is sought from state and/or federal sources and administered by the agency to augment overall project financing. Partner agencies have included U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, United States Department of Agriculture, NYS Office for Small Cities, and the NYS Office for Community Renewal.
Administer Revolving Loan Fund
  Activities funded are subject to HUD regulations and therefore must meet one of the following objectives: benefit low to moderate income persons, prevention or elimination of slums or blight, or meet community development needs having particular urgency (i.e. serious and immediate threat to health or welfare).

The Agency may authorize loans for facility construction, acquisition, rehabilitation, or improvement of industrial or manufacturing facilities, research and development facilities, or other eligible business facilities located within the city.

In addition, the agency may also finance a portion of the cost of a firmís machinery and equipment to be used and located within the city.

Property Acquisition and Management
  The agency may also acquire and manage buildings and/or property for lease to private enterprise firms.  Such real property is exempt from property taxes, however the agency requires a negotiated schedule of payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) arrangement.
Tax Abatements and Exemptions
  In addition to property tax abatements, other NYS tax benefits include exemption from mortgage and deed transfer taxes.
Sale of Bonds and Notes
