Who else is supporting the Downtown Ithaca Conference Center?

Other partners are also contributing financially to the project. New York State is providing a $5 million grant through Empire State Development. Tompkins County will contribute 4% of County room tax collections annually over the next 30 years. The Downtown Ithaca Alliance will pay $500,000 over the first ten years of the project. Four downtown hotels (Downton Ithaca Marriott, Hotel Ithaca, Hilton Canopy, and Hilton Garden Inn) will collectively pay $100,000 to support construction, $50,000 annually for the first ten years in sponsorship, and $150,000 into an operating reserve fund, with commitments to replenish that reserve fund if it is used.
