Consolidated Funding Application Training

Tips to Give You the Best Chance at Receiving Funding


This workshop will provide an overview of the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) process as well as the ins and outs of the application. The CFA allows applicants to be considered for multiple sources of New York State funding for a project by filling out just one application.

This training will give you a detailed look at what is in the application, what the state may be looking for and things to focus on in your application to help give you the best chance at receiving funding. 

Nonprofits looking to apply for the CFA must have an active account through the NYS Grants Gateway. This process can take 2-3 weeks to complete so if you're even remotely interested in applying for CFA Funding this year, it's best to get started on getting access to Grants Gateway. More info about prequalification in Grants Gateway. We will go over the process for this requirement at this session as well.
