Today, Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) announced that Empire State Development will be hosting a series of Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) workshops throughout the state. The workshops will provide valuable insight to the application and CFA process. Following each workshop will be a forum discussing the Upstate Revitalization Initiative (URI) and other economic development projects.

A CFA workshop will be held in the 139th Assembly District on Thursday, June 4 from 3 to 7 p.m. at Genesee Community College. Individuals interested in participating can register here.

“I encourage all potential applicants to attend these informative events,” said Hawley. “In order for their ideas to be taken into serious consideration by the Regional Economic Development Councils it is critical that well-developed proposals are submitted. By attending the CFA workshops individuals will gain the essential knowledge they need to properly submit their application.”

Additionally, the assemblyman announced that the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council is seeking meaningful ideas from local job creators. The ideas must provide practical strategies on how to best pool resources and create the most effective revitalization plan for the Finger Lakes region.

“In order to enhance and improve the current conditions of the economic climate in the Finger Lakes Region, the development council is calling on the best and brightest to put forth innovative proposals and ideas. By incorporating a large variety of ideas the council will be able to prioritize the projects and strategies in a way that best benefits the future of the Finger Lakes,” Hawley concluded.
