The Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) is now open for the 9th Round of Regional Economic Development Council Competitions: http://www.regionalcouncils.ny.gov/central-new-york.
The Regional Economic Development Council initiative (REDC) is a key component of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s transformative approach to State investment and economic development. In 2011, Governor Cuomo established 10 Regional Councils to develop long-term strategic plans for economic growth for their regions. The Councils are public-private partnerships made up of local experts and stakeholders from business, academia, local government, and non-governmental organizations. For 2019, the Central New York REDC will continue to implement its updated plan, CNY Rising Upstate Revitalization Initiative, to emphasize the vision for the Central New York Region: Innovation and collaboration will create opportunity for all who live and work in Central New York. We will take ownership over our future; operate in a nimble, efficient and effective manner; and leverage our many assets – natural, agricultural, geographic, economic, educational, cultural, and human – to form a diverse, sustainable and globally competitive economy while preserving and enhancing our region’s treasured quality of life.
