CFA Process and Local Support

Governor Cuomo’s transformative Regional Economic Development Councils Round IX consolidated funding application (CFA) process opened May 1 and Capitalize Albany staff is available to assist applicants. More than $750 million in state economic development resources will be made available.

Applicants that plan on requesting a letter of support or require a municipal resolution must complete the Project Intake Form available here and return it to Capitalize Albany by June 26.
