The State has made available $5 million in new competitive funding to be provided through the Department of Economic Development (DED) to support winning tourism marketing plans that best demonstrate regional collaboration among counties to promote regional attractions. This year, the Governor also proposed that part of this funding initiative be used for regional promotion and marketing.
The State made available $1.1 million to implement the Taste-NY initiative, which was designed to promote locally grown or produced food products, beer, wine and spirits and other New York-made goods through a two-part strategy that combined the development of retail venues with aggressive marketing and branding.
