Please contact us early in the process to determine if your project is eligible for COMIDA assistance.
Each applicant seeking assistance from COMIDA must complete the COMIDA application material. A non-refundable application fee of $350.00 must be included with this application. Make the check payable to COMIDA.
In the absence of a waiver permitting otherwise, every project seeking COMIDA assistance must use all local labor for the construction of new, expanded or renovated facilities. "Local" is defined as residing in Monroe, Genesee, Livingston, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming, or Yates counties. Certain JobsPlus and all Enhanced JobsPlus projects have an additional all local suppliers requirement.

You must submit both COMIDA’s application form and New York State’s short Environmental Assessment form, as required by the State’s Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQR). In New York State, most projects or activities proposed by a New York State agency or by a unit of local government, or which require discretionary approval from a NYS agency or a unit of local government, are subject to the NYS Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQR). These include projects sponsored by COMIDA.
Specifically, you must complete the short Environmental Assessment Form (EAF). You can get this form as a PDF at the following web site: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6191.html.
Information in the application may be subject to public review under New York State Law, except for information that is considered deniable by the Freedom of Information Law.
