New York State (NYS) Consolidated Funding Application (CFA)
Are you a NY manufacturer planning on expanding? Are you investing in your business? Does your workforce need to upgrade their skills?
If you answered "yes", to any of those questions, look into the New York State (NYS) Consolidated Funding Application (CFA), managed through the NYC Regional Council. Governor Cuomo recently announced $220 million in a combination of grants, loans and tax credits to support regionally significant projects and job creation across New York State.
As described on the Empire State Development website:
“The CFA enables businesses and other entities to apply to multiple agency funding sources through a single, web-based application. The 2012 CFA will provide access to $530 million in economic development resources from 21 programs across a dozen state agencies, including: Empire State Development; NYS Canal Corporation; NYS Energy Research and Development Authority; Environmental Facilities Corporation; Homes and Community Renewal; Department of Labor; Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation; Department of State; New York Power Authority; Agriculture and Markets; Department of Environment Conservation; and Council on the Arts. The agency programs provide resources for projects focused on community development, direct assistance to business, waterfront revitalization, energy and environmental improvements, sustainability, workforce development, agricultural economic development and low-cost financing.
The CFA is now open to applicants. CFAs will be reviewed by the local Regional Council based on its alignment with the strategic plan and will be reviewed on a technical basis by agencies from which the applicant may be eligible for funding.

To maximize participation in the process and ensure high-quality applications, public workshops will be held in each region of the state to explain the programs and eligibility standards, as well as recent improvements to the CFA application process.
