Of the 22 businesses and universities on Long Island that received a total of nearly $15.6 million in grants from Empire State Development, all kept their promises for job creation or retention, accounting for a net gain of more than 1,600 new jobs since the aid was granted. Here are details from Empire State Development, the state’s primary business-aid agency. While all companies remained in compliance with their job preservation/creation commitments, two companies created no new jobs, and one lost three jobs.
