Now Accepting Capital Funding Applications for FY 2017 Budget

Schools, cultural institutions, and nonprofit organizations can apply for capital funding online at

Today, Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer announced her office is accepting applications through Friday, February 12, 2016 for Fiscal Year 2017 capital funding, and welcomed any organizations interested in capital funding to meet with her staff. Under the City Charter, each of the five borough presidents can direct the allocation of a portion of the city’s capital budget to invest in the infrastructure of their borough’s schools, public facilities, nonprofit organizations and cultural institutions.

“Capital funding gives us the opportunity to invest in Manhattan’s future,” said Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer. “Whether we’re fixing the roof at a branch library, renovating a playground, or building out a new computer lab at a local school, these capital awards are going to strengthen our borough and our city, and improve people’s lives.”

In the FY 2016 City Budget, Brewer’s office awarded $30 million in Manhattan capital projects, including improvements and purchases for 92 schools, 9 CUNY and SUNY campuses, 16 public parks, and more. While Brewer’s office will continue to fund a broad range of purchases and improvements with her FY 2017 capital funds, Brewer has also reserved up to $1 million for schools to invest in hydroponics, urban gardening, and farming.
