As a result of recent legislation, individuals considered to have “business
dealings with the City” are subject to lower campaign contribution limits and
their campaign contributions are no longer matchable with public funds.
The doing business contribution limits are:
Mayor/Public Advocate/Comptroller = $400
Borough President = $320
Council = $250
These limits apply to both monetary and in-kind contributions and apply to
both participants and non-participants.
Any entity that purchases or acquires city owned land, applies for an
affordable housing loan or grant, requests a discretionary tax benefit, applies
for a low income housing tax credit or requests an inclusionary housing
agreement is considered to be doing business with the City. Click here for
