President Biden’s Fiscal Year 2025 Budget Proposes Investments in New York Buildings

New York, N.Y. - The Biden-Harris Administration recently announced that the President’s Budget for Fiscal Year 2025 includes funding for improvements to the Jacob K. Javits Federal Building in Manhattan and the Emanuel Celler U.S. Courthouse in Brooklyn, N.Y. Following historic progress made since the President took office—with nearly 15 million jobs created and inflation down two-thirds—the Budget protects and builds on this progress by lowering costs for working families, investing in America and the American people, cutting wasteful spending and reducing the deficit.

The Budget makes critical, targeted investments for the American people that will promote greater prosperity and economic growth for decades to come. The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is requesting funds in the FY25 Budget to right size the federal footprint and save billions in taxpayer dollars, strengthen and improve digital services across the government including responsible use of Artificial Intelligence, and accelerate sustainability through electric vehicle adoption.

“The President’s Budget reflects critical, targeted investments that will accelerate GSA’s efforts to right-size the real estate portfolio, ensure the secure and effective use of technology across government, and lead the way toward a clean transportation future,” said Administrator Robin Carnahan. “These sound investments will yield big returns for taxpayers – from reducing real estate leasing costs to making smart, efficient use of technology across government.”

In New York State, the President’s FY25 budget request for GSA includes:

Jacob K. Javits Federal Building | Manhattan | $37.2 million
Upgrades will be made to the existing fire alarm system. In addition GSA will abate and build out select spaces in the building for ongoing Federal operations.

Emanuel Celler U.S. Courthouse | Brooklyn | $6 million
The project will include removing and replacing the building’s condenser and water pipes while abating ancillary hazardous materials. GSA will perform work to mitigate flood risks and associated disruptions to building operations.

“The inclusion in the Budget of resources to upgrade the fire alarm system at the Javits building, as well as the upgrades proposed for the Celler courthouse reinforces GSA’s commitment to maintain these important assets for the benefit of federal workers and the members of the public who use these facilities everyday,” said GSA Northeast and Caribbean Regional Administrator, Francis Thomas.
