Solicitation Profile
Through the New York State Consolidated Funding Application (CFA), a single application for multiple sources of state funding, New York State is soliciting applications for funding to advance the priorities of the Regional Economic Development Councils (REDC). Funding will be available for the following projects:

Direct Assistance to Businesses and Other Organizations
Community Development
Waterfront Revitalization
Environmental Improvements
SustainabilityPlanning and Implementation
Education/Workforce Development
Low Cost Financing

This announcement is meant to provide a general overview of the programs included in this year’s REDC/CFA competition and does not contain all program requirements and guidelines. Full solicitations, application materials, and details for CFA workshops are available online at

The funding solicitation opens on Monday, May 2, 2016 and applications will be accepted through the CFA until 4:00 pm on Friday, July 29, 2016.

This year, there are over 30 programs available through 11 state agencies, including Empire State Development; NYS Canal Corporation; NYS Energy Research and Development Authority; Environmental Facilities Corporation; Homes and Community Renewal; Department of Labor; New York Power Authority; Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation; Department of State; Department of Environmental Conservation, and Council on the Arts. In an effort to provide the most appropriate state resources through this process, participating agencies will be able to review and potentially provide funding to a project that did not specifically apply to that program, if the materials submitted at time of application satisfy the requirements for that program and allow for fair review under the circumstances. In addition, all programs contained in this document will use regional distribution standards to ensure projects are funded throughout the state.

For more information or questions regarding the CFA, please contact the appropriate Regional Council covering the project area:
