Project Tracking Dashboard
The Project Tracking Dashboard provides information on previously funded CFA Projects. This interactive tool allows for summarization and analysis of all project data. It contains four tabs: Top Level Stats, Investments & Jobs, a Map, and an Appendix. For more information on how to use and interpret the dashboard, please see the Dashboard Guidance Document.
The main way to seek NYS funding is the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) portal, which is used for dozens of agency offerings. Some programs are open year-round, but most programs are open during the annual "round" that typically runs from May-July.
