CFA funding

NYS CFA Grant Funding Process Opens


Rockland County CFA Workshop Held May 17th

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s REDC Round 9 initiative has been announced, with $750 million in state economic development resources available to fund regional economic development projects through the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) process. Since 2011, the first year of the initiative, the CFA has enabled businesses, municipalities, not-for-profits and members of the public to apply for multiple sources of funding from dozens of state agency programs through a single application, for projects that create jobs and help to revitalize communities.

CFA workshops and information sessions will be held throughout the 7-county Mid-Hudson region. Also provided below are links to Round 9 REDC guidelines and other resources for submitting a CFA application.

Regional Council priorities in 2019 include two new areas of emphasis:

  • Working with local businesses and communities to identify childcare needs and develop potential solutions
  • ​​Developing an economic and environmental justice strategy for the region
    In addition to:
  • Supporting community investment in place making and downtown revitalization
  • ​Supporting the Workforce Development Initiative.

The following Round 9 Resources are now available on the Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council’s website (
