Massive Upgrades Were Needed

In need of a major redevelopment and energy upgrades, The Hunts Point Market turned to DHC Government Relations Group to find innovative ways to finance a once in a generation project.

Assessing Funding Paths

DHC’s City, State and Federal government relations teams had been pursuing a strategic plan targeting federal, state and city funding.

“DHC’s tireless effort, along with the support of the New York City Congressional Delegation, were rewarded on October 5th, 2022, when it was announced that the Hunts Point Produce Market was selected for a $110 Million U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) grant.”
