The Niagara County Industrial Development Agency on Wednesday announced its Consolidated Funding Application for the Microenterprise Grant Program has been approved by New York, with $200,000 in funds being made available. The program will provide resources to support and foster the development of local microbusinesses. Economic Development Chairman Rich Andres of North Tonawanda said, ���We recognize that nearly half of the U.S. economy is driven by small business, which is why it’s so important that we continue to support small business growth here in Niagara County.” Niagara County Center for Economic Development has created a microenterprise grant fund that will issue funding to start-ups and small businesses. The county has partnered with the Small Business Development Center to provide free training that will cover various topics such as legal issues, taxes, recordkeeping, accounting, financing, marketing and advertising, and employee issues.
