Western New York Consolidated Funding Application Public Information Session

May 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

We are pleased to advise that the 2019 Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) officially opened today and online applications are now available.  In Round 9 of the competition, the 10 regions of New York State will once again be competing for more than $750 million in state funding through various agencies, including up to $150 million in ESD capital grants for projects identified by the Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) as priorities in our region.  The deadline for CFA submissions is Friday, July 26, at 4:00 p.m.  Applications must be submitted online.  No late submissions will be accepted by the online system after the deadline.

The WNY REDC and Empire State Development encourage interested applicants to attend one of the workshops or information sessions being offered in our region to learn about New York State’s Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) online application process, eligibility criteria, and how to access these state resources.  A full schedule of sessions and RSVP information can be at the WNY REDC website located here: https://regionalcouncils.ny.gov/western-new-york.
