Mohawk Valley Regional Economic Development Council
The Mohawk Valley Regional Economic Development Council is one of 10 councils created throughout New York State by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and Fulton County is included in this region. These 10 Regional Economic Development Councils are public-private partnerships composed of local experts and stakeholders from business, academia, local government, and non-governmental organizations.
The Regional Councils represent a fundamental shift in the state's approach to economic development, from a top-down development model to a community-based approach that emphasizes regions' unique assets, harnesses local expertise, and empowers communities to stimulate regional economic development and create jobs statewide.
Currently, New York State's economic development efforts are managed through dozens of separate state and local agencies. The Regional Councils now bring together stakeholders in every region of the state to serve as a coordinated point of contact for economic development.
Each Regional Council has developed a plan for the development of their region, which can be found at the .pdf document below. The state will work with the Regional Councils to align state resources and policies, eliminate unnecessary barriers to growth and prosperity, and streamline the delivery of government services and programs to help the Regional Councils carry out their plans for development.
