What is the DRI?
The Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) is a New York State program designed to foster the transformation of urban centers with significant potential for redevelopment, business, job creation, greater economic and housing diversity, and opportunity. The intention is to provide funding that can help communities on the cusp of economic revitalization tip over into sustained prosperity. Communities are selected annually by their respective Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) through a competitive application process. Previous winners for the Mohawk Valley Region are Oneonta, Rome, Amsterdam, and Utica.
Gloversville was announced as a Round Five DRI awardee for the Mohawk Valley Region in December 2021 due to the City's demonstrated commitment and momentum toward revitalizing downtown. The City has received a $10 million grant to develop a Strategic Investment Plan and implement key catalytic projects that advance the community’s vision for revitalization. The effort will be led by a Local Planning Committee (LPC) composed of municipal representatives, community leaders, and other stakeholders and guided by regular input from the public collected through a series of community engagement opportunities as outlined in the Public Engagement Strategy. The LPC will also be supported by a team of private sector experts and state planners and informed by regular input from the local community.
