NY Empire State Development

NY Empire State Development

Empire State Development, with co-headquarters in Albany, Buffalo and New York City, is supported by a network of ten regional offices throughout the State.

Empire State Development (ESD) is New York’s chief economic development agency. The mission of Empire State Development is to promote a vigorous and growing economy, encourage the creation of new job and economic opportunities, increase revenues to the State and its municipalities, and achieve stable and diversified local economies. Through the use of loans, grants, tax credits and other forms of financial assistance, Empire State Development strives to enhance private business investment and growth to spur job creation and support prosperous communities across New York State. 

Our ten regional offices serve as one-stop centers to assist companies located outside of the State and those already in the State by offering a wide-range of services to both. We listen to your plans, analyze your project and provide you with the information you need to establish or expand your company in New York State. ESD’s network of regional offices is the foundation of our economic development organization.
