Consolidated Funding Applications (CFA) are due 4:00 pm on Friday, July 31st!
The signs of summer are in full affect in Western New York. The days are getting longer, the grass is getting greener (and longer), and the Consolidated Funding Application submission period is open!
As part of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) initiative, the Consolidated Funding Application has streamlined and expedited the grant application process by allowing interested parties to apply for over $750 million through 20 economic development assistance programs offered by state agencies and authorities.
The online CFA portal is now open to applicants across New York State.
Businesses, community organizations, not-for-profit groups and any other stakeholders interested in learning about the CFA process and accessing state economic development assistance are encouraged to attend one of the scheduled public workshops hosted by the Western New York Regional Economic Development Council.
The workshop schedule is as follows:
Monday, June 15th
Jamestown Community College – Cutco Theatre
260 North Union Street, Olean NY 14760
Monday, June 29th
Niagara Falls Conference Center – Cascades Ballroom
101 Old Falls Street, Niagara Falls NY 14303
The workshops will include an overview of available funding programs, eligibility and selection criteria, and instructions on how to use the online CFA application systems. Further, the 2015 CFA Resources Manual, the 2015 Regional Economic Development Council Guidebook and other important information can be found on the REDC website.
