Last week, the seven Upstate regions that are eligible to participate in the $1.5 billion Upstate Revitalization Initiative (URI) submitted their respective plans. (Click on the links below to view each region’s plan.)

Under the URI, three Upstate regions will each be awarded $100 million annually for five years. The winners will be announced in December in conjunction with annual Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) awards.

We are pleased that the state continues to focus on the Upstate economy, and on the need to grow good jobs Upstate.
