The Cazenovia Area Community Development Association (CACDA) is presently seeking funding through the New York State Office of Community Renewal Micro-Enterprise Program. This funding would allow CACDA to make small grants ($10,000 to $35,000) to new or expanding local businesses.
“These grants are for small businesses with five or fewer employees,” said CACDA Executive Director Lauren Lines. “The grants can be used for a variety of purposes to help small businesses get established or expand. Grants may not be used for construction and there is a 10 percent cash match required.”
Applicants must be considered low or moderate income or must create one or more jobs that are available to low- and moderate-income individuals.
CACDA is presently seeking letters of interest from potential applicants. For information or to submit a letter of interest, contact Lauren Lines at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315-655-7651.
