State and Municipalities (SAM) Facilities Grant program
- $475 million was appropriated for SAM funding for FY2019, and $385 million of that funding includes language to expand the eligibility criteria to include nonprofits.
- The grants are awarded by the Executive and Legislative members of the Senate and Assembly, and administered through DASNY.
- SAM funding is now available and we encourage you to meet with your local representatives to request funding for your organization.
- The allowable uses of funding are for capital work or purpose as described in Section 67-a of the State Finance law, which includes construction and improvement of buildings owned by the applicant as well as the acquisition of capital facilities.
- If you are in a leased space, there may be an opportunity to apply for a capital improvement project if the owner of the building is also eligible for SAM; public libraries, public schools, and public housing authorities are current examples of SAM eligible entities.
- The SAM awards are processed through DASNY, and awardees should familiarize themselves with the requirements for capital funding which can include M/WBE requirements, proof of deed to the property, and bid information.
DASNY does not have any requirements on the size of the project – either minimum or maximum – but the legislature and executive may impose their own award requirements.
