Governor Cuomo Announces Round 7 of the Consolidated Funding Application

In 2011, Governor Cuomo launched the Regional Economic Development Councils (REDC) and the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) to provide each region with the tools to create and implement their own roadmap for economic prosperity and job creation. This community-based model uses local assets to drive local economic growth and has resulted in unprecedented partnerships and collaboration that are building a reinvigorated economy.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to work with their Regional Council to align their project with regional goals and priorities. The 2017 REDC Guidebook and a list of available resources will be accessible at

As part of Round 7 (2017), EFC is proud to announce the availability of up to $3 million for wastewater infrastructure planning. Funding will provide up to $100,000 to municipalities based on program criteria. For more information on Wastewater Infrastructure Engineering Planning Grants, please visit DEC’s website.
