These Statistics Show the IDA’s Positive Affect on Yonkers’ Development

The average citizen may not be aware of it, but quite often, a key driver behind economic, workforce, and overall quality-of-life growth within a community stems from what’s called an industrial development authority (IDA).

Through financial incentives via private investment, IDAs facilitate construction, renovation, and development projects for the express purpose of enhancing the lifestyle and economic well-being of the municipalities they serve. It won’t surprise you, then, to learn that Yonkers has an IDA of its own, and it had a banner year in 2019.

Here’s a quick glance of just some of what the Yonkers Industrial Development Authority (YIDA) helped stimulate in 2019 alone:
