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.
        § 448. FUND ALLOCATION AND GRANT AWARDS.
        § 449. FUNDING CRITERIA.
