Please contact us early in the process to determine if your project is eligible for COMIDA incentives. You begin by submitting an application to COMIDA on behalf of your company or organization. You may also be required to submit the New York State’s short Environmental Assessment form, as required by the State’s Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQR). A non-refundable application fee of $350.00 must be included with this application. Make the check payable to COMIDA.
Please note: All-Local Labor Requirement
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.
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.
Mail the completed Application for Financial Assistance form, the short EAF (if required), and a check for $350.00 payable to COMIDA to:
