AN ACT to amend the economic development law, in relation to a New  York
  state community solutions matching grant program

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1.  Legislative findings and intent. (a) New York state boasts
a diverse array of colleges  and  universities  that  enhance  community
life, promote economic opportunity, improve health and safety and ensure
quality education. The New York state community solutions matching grant
program  will  serve as a catalyst for partnerships between institutions
of higher education and communities to solve community problems  through
research,  outreach  activities  and  the exchange of information. These
institutions of higher education will help  to  address  the  challenges
facing  New  York  state  communities  and provide critical services and
programs to assist the broad needs of New Yorkers.
  (b) Research and outreach activities assisted under this program shall
focus on problems associated with, but not limited to, housing, economic
development, neighborhood revitalization, infrastructure,  health  care,
job  training, education, planning, community organizing and other areas
deemed appropriate by the empire state  development  corporation.  Funds
received  under  this  program  shall  be  used  for  new and innovative
programs that will address  the  problems  identified  in  the  eligible
applicant's  application  or to expand and grow existing programs run by
the applicant that are already addressing challenges and needs in  their
community.
  §  2.  The economic development law is amended by adding a new article
23 to read as follows:
                               ARTICLE 23
        NEW YORK STATE COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS MATCHING GRANT PROGRAM
  SECTION 447. DEFINITIONS.
