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.

Applications are no longer being accepted for Round 6.

The Round 6 application deadline closed Friday, July 29th at 4 p.m.

The 2016 REDC Guidebook and a list of available resources is accessible at www.regionalcouncils.ny.gov.
