NYS enacted the Public Authorities Accountability Act (PAAA) of 2005, which was signed into law in January 2006.  This ground-breaking law established guidelines for the governance of public authorities as well as disclosure requirements relating to the structure, activities and finances of the authorities.

Fulton County Center for Regional Growth has been defined by the NYS Authorities Budget Office as a local authority, a not-for-profit corporation affiliated with, sponsored by, or created by a county, city, and town or village government.  In order to comply with the primary purpose of the law that ensures greater efficiency, openness and accountability of New York State’s authorities, comprehensive reporting, auditing, governance and property disposition requirements have been established.

The mission of the Fulton County Center for Regional Growth is to strengthen our economic base, facilitate sustainable growth, enhance the competitive position of our region, its counties, towns and cities and facilitate investments that build capacity, create jobs, improve quality of life and increase the standard of living for all of its residents.
