Empire State Development CFA Grant Information Session
February 27 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
To help prepare and guide prospective applications for the upcoming 2019 Regional Council Consolidated Funding Application (CFA), the WNY Regional Economic Development Council and ESD will once again be accepting Letters of Interest (LOI) and area pleased to advise the process is now open for submissions. Through soliciting LOIs we seek to identify prospective projects early in the year that can be developed over the next few months and, as a result, be of a higher quality. The Letter of Interest is optional and voluntary; it is not a required step in the application process and does not guarantee funding. As a LOI is received by the Regional Council, staff from the WNY ESD office will contact the applicants to discuss projects and provide technical assistance.
To complete and submit an online Letter of Interest form for your project, go to: http://regionalcouncils.ny.gov/western-new-york
In addition, ESD will be holding information sessions (“ESD on the Road”) to hear from applicants on their prospective project ideas and issues in their community that may be developed into project applications.
