The Excelsior Jobs Program will provide job creation and investment incentives to firms in such targeted industries as biotechnology, pharmaceutical, high-tech, clean-technology, green technology, financial services, agriculture and manufacturing. Firms in these strategic industries that create and maintain new jobs or make significant financial investment will be eligible for up to four new tax credits. The Program will encourage businesses to expand in and relocate to New York while maintaining strict accountability standards to guarantee that businesses deliver on job and investment commitments. Program costs are capped at $250 million annually to maintain fiscal affordability and ensure that New Yorkers realize a positive return on their investment.
