To help prepare and guide prospective applications for the Regional Council Consolidated Funding Application (CFA), the WNY Regional Economic Development Council and ESD will once again be accepting Letters of Interest (LOI) and are pleased to advise the process is now open for submissions. Through soliciting LOIs we seek to identify prospective projects early in the year that can be developed over the next few months and, as a result, be of a higher quality. The Letter of Interest is optional and voluntary; it is not a required step in the application process and does not guarantee funding. As a LOI is received by the Regional Council, staff from the WNY ESD office will contact the applicants to discuss projects and provide technical assistance.
