The Office of the Bronx Borough President is mandated by Sections 211 and 249 of the New York City Charter to receive and disburse a discretionary capital allocation every fiscal year. The amount of funds available to the Borough President is determined by the physical size and population of the borough, as well as the City’s capital budget for that fiscal year.

The Borough President’s discretionary capital funds are not allocated directly from the Borough President’s Office. Instead, any allocation made by the Borough President is placed as a line item in the budget of the appropriate agency’s budget [i.e. any monies for a Housing project would fall under the purview of the Department of Housing, Preservation and Development (HPD). After the city’s budget process is completed, Awardees are notified in writing when the Fiscal Year begins on July 1st.

Comptroller’s Directive 10:

Sustainable Development Policy

This memorandum sets forth the mandate that projects meet certifiable sustainability standards to receive Borough President Capital funds. The mandate applies primarily to housing and community facilities. Relevant programs establishing sustainability criteria are: NY State Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA), Enterprise Green Building Criteria, The U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Environmental & Energy Design (LEED) standards and New York City’s Green Building Law.  Developers seeking BP capital funds should be required to attain certification under one of the identified programs.

Project design must be independently certified before funds are dispersed.
