New York allocates 2.5 million dollars to preserve its garment district

 

 

New York is committed to the textile industry. The Garment District Alliance has allocated 2.5 million dollars to promote ten potential programs to provide various services designed to sustain and enhance the apparel industry’s local presence.

 

The program’s plans include improving the economic vitality of the district and will address initiatives such as workforce development, small business development, modernization, industry marketing, international trade and place-making in the district, according to WWD.

 

 

 

 

Among the supporters of the new initiatives for the New York district are the Council of Fashion Designers of America (Cfda), the Pratt Center for Community Development and the Industrial and Technology Asistance.

 

“The fashion industry is an iconic and integral piece of New York City’s story and I am proud to work with the Garment District Alliance to support new initiatives that will help fortify apparel manufacturing in the garment district,” stated the city council speaker, Corey Johnson.

 

The new investment for the garment district of the city happens one year after GDA’s rezoning initiative, which lifted zoning restrictions affecting 11 million square feet of space in the district and that kept it limited to manufacturing uses.
