Consolidated Funding Application Resources and Workshops

Post: May. 1, 2019

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s REDC Round 9 initiative has been announced, with $750 million in state economic development resources available to fund regional economic development projects through the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) process. Since 2011, the first year of the initiative, the CFA 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.

The region will hold CFA Workshops and Information Sessions throughout the 7-county Mid-Hudson region. Below are dates and locations of upcoming workshops and information sessions you can attend. Also provided below are links to Round 9 REDC guidelines and other resources that will guide you through the process of submitting a CFA application.

The following Round 9 Resources are now available on the Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council’s website (http://www.regionalcouncils.ny.gov/mid-hudson):
