SYRACUSE, N.Y. — CenterState CEO’s Southeast Gateway Initiative is accepting applications for its mini-grant program.
The organization will invest $15,000 in small business real-estate development and property-improvement projects, per its Wednesday news release.
CenterState CEO will award the three $5,000 grants to small business and/or mixed-use property owners to support property improvements within the Southeast Gateway neighborhood.
The program seeks to build on other large-scale development projects happening in or near the neighborhood including the $2 billion Interstate 81 project; JMA Wireless’ $25 million renovation of the Coyne building; the $11.3 million investment in the mixed-use Salina 1st facility; and the more than $300 million Blueprint 15 redevelopment.
“The Southeast Gateway Neighborhood is experiencing an economic renaissance anchored by a series of transformative investments and we want to ensure they are complemented by neighborhood-based projects,” Calvin Corriders, manager of neighborhood economic development at CenterState CEO, said in the release. “These grants will target projects that can best leverage Syracuse’s recent economic growth and further position the Southeast Gateway as a vibrant, inclusive and sustainable community.”
