Industrial Development Agency

We have developed projects all across upstate New York, and haven’t found a more effective economic development partner than the Geneva IDA. They seek out opportunities to build on their market, and welcome their strategic business partners with open arms.
Jim Taylor
President of Taylor Builders

The Geneva IDA is one of the city’s longest standing economic development partners.  The IDA has been involved in the revitalization of downtown Geneva for over 20 years, providing financing and project incentive support.  The IDA has also been a funding and advisory partner on the BID’s Full Occupancy Initiative, New York Main Street grant programs, Microenterprise Assistance Program, and the city’s comprehensive plan development. The IDA can provide property tax relief, sales and mortgage tax exemptions, and land-cost write-downs for qualified projects.
