The legislature hereby finds and declares that there exists in New York state a serious
need for financial and technical resources to help communities with their efforts
to preserve and revitalize main street and downtown business districts which include
commercial and residential uses. The legislature therefore finds that a program should be established to provide
financial assistance to stimulate reinvestment in properties located within main street,
mixed-use commercial, and downtown business districts in urban, small town, and rural
areas by preserving existing housing units, fostering the development of new housing
units, upgrading commercial and retail areas, and by creating innovative approaches
to neighborhood and community revitalization, including the improvement of cultural,
civic and community facilities.
