Consolidated Funding Application - Round XII Is Open!
Round XII opened on May 2, 2022 and includes core capital grant and tax-credit funding to be combined with a wide range of programs from various state agencies that will provide funding for prospective projects. A few important points on this latest round of economic development funding:

Open enrollment programs are not subject to the July 29 deadline and will continue to accept applications on an ongoing basis until funds are exhausted.
This year many planning and infrastructure programs will not be scored by the Long Island REDC. To learn more about these programs, click on the "Standalone CFA Programs" link below.
