Every year New York state provides a variety of grants to businesses of all sizes and types. The NYS Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) has been created that will streamline and expedite the grant application process. The Westchester County Office of Economic Development is urging businesses, organizations and municipalities to attend informational workshops being held in June to learn more about funding opportunities in the next round of the Mid-Hudson Consolidated Funding Application (CFA). The deadline for submitting applications for CFA grants is July 26, 2019.
“These informational workshops are a tremendous opportunity for local business owners to learn more about the CFA application process and the funding available to expand their businesses,” said Westchester County Executive George Latimer. “CFA funding plays an important role in promoting economic development in our County and the Hudson Valley region,” he added.
New Rochelle’ First Source Referral Center will be the site for the information session on June 20th to learn about the grant funding available through the CFA program. This session will be hosted by Bridget Gibbons and Corazon Pineda from the Westchester County Office of Economic Development.
Additionally, at the session in New Rochelle, representatives from Community Capital and Excelsior Growth Fund will inform business owners about other grant and alternative lending programs (CDFI/SBA) that can be possible options for accessing capital.
Please RSVP to EconomicDevelopment@Westchestergov.com to attend the workshop on June 20th.
