Last week, Gov. Cuomo announced the launch of the seventh round of the state’s Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) competition, beginning on May 1.

The 2017 REDC Guidebook and list of available resources can be found at the Regional Council web site. The Consolidated Funding (CFA) will open to applicants on Monday, May 1, and the deadline for applications is Friday, July 28, 2017 at 4 pm.

Gov. Cuomo said:

“The Regional Economic Development Councils have successfully brought local communities together like never before, spurring economic growth from the ground up and creating jobs across New York. With the seventh round of the REDC awards, the state will continue its partnership with local governments and community leaders – making smart investments in our cities, towns and villages to give the Regional Councils the tools needed to build their communities for years to come.”
