Purpose of Grant: 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).
Project Period: Varies by specific funding program.
Application Due Date: The funding solicitation opened on Monday, May 10, 2021 and applications will be accepted through the CFA until 4:00 pm on Friday, July 30, 2021 for programs subject to this deadline as outlined in the Available Resources section.
Project Description: This year, there are over 30 programs available through 9 state agencies, including Empire State Development; NYS Canal Corporation; NYS Energy Research and Development Authority; Environmental Facilities Corporation; Homes and Community Renewal; New York Power Authority; Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation; Department of State; and Department of Environmental Conservation. 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.
