The Regional Economic Development Councils and the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) provides each region with the tools to create and implement their own road map 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.
The 2016 CFA made over $750 million in economic development resources available from over thirty programs across eleven state agencies. The Agency's programs provide resources for projects focused on community development and job creation, tourism, waterfront revitalization, energy and environmental improvements, sustainability, and low-cost financing. Empire State Development is proud to have contributed $262 million to this year's Consolidated Funding Application.
