Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) Now Open through July 27


Now that Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) Round 8 initiative has officially opened, $750 million in state economic development resources is available to fund regional economic development projects through the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) process.

Since 2011, the first year of the initiative, the Consolidated Funding Application has enabled businesses, municipalities, not-for-profits and members of the public to apply for multiple sources of funding from dozens of state agency programs through a single application, for projects that create jobs and help to revitalize communities.

As in past years, Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) Workshops and Information Sessions will be held in the Mid-Hudson region. See below for dates and locations, including a workshop at Westchester Community College in Valhalla on June 5, 2018.

Also provided below are Round 8 REDC guidelines and other resources that are meant to guide you through the process of submitting a CFA application.





CFA Application Deadline: July 27, 2018 by 4:00pm SHARP
