Governor Cuomo Announces Green Innovation Grants

In 2011, Governor Cuomo launched the Regional Economic Development Councils and the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) to provide each region with the tools to create and implement their own roadmap 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.

After four rounds, the 2015 CFA made $750 million in economic development resources available from over thirty programs across thirteen state agencies.

As part of Round 5 of the REDC initiative, EFC is proud to have contributed $14.85 million to 19 projects through the Green Innovation Grant Program (GIGP).
