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.
In order to be considered for Environmental Planning Grant funding, applicants must complete a Consolidated Funding Application (CFA). For the application form, please visit the Regional Economic Development Council Website. Applications will be evaluated based on the criteria listed on the program page.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to work with their Regional Council to align their project with regional goals and priorities.
