Governor Cuomo Announces More than $700 Million in Awards in for Economic Development Resources in 2016

On December 8, 2016, Governor Cuomo hosted the 6th annual Regional Economic Development Council Awards Ceremony, announcing projects selected through the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA). This year, the CFA offered more than $700 million in economic development resources from over thirty programs across eleven state agencies.  These agency programs provide resources for projects focused on community development, job creation, tourism, waterfront revitalization, energy and environmental improvements, sustainability, and low-cost financing.

The New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC) is proud to have contributed $10,000,000 to this year's CFA. GIGP continues to support greener streets, cleaner lakes and more environmentally responsible approaches to stormwater management, while encouraging out-of-the-box thinking about stormwater technologies. The 2016 awardees are listed HERE.

The Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) is currently closed.
