Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has announced a $38,000 United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) grant for technical assistance, in the form of leadership and supervisory training, to local small business owners across multiple counties by the North Country Chamber of Commerce in Plattsburgh, NY. This funding will support training for businesses in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, and St. Lawrence counties, allowing them to expand and save an estimated 26 jobs over the next 3 years.
“I am excited to announce the USDA has awarded this funding to support the development of local North Country businesses,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Ensuring that local businesses receive support is key for many rural communities in our region, and I will continue to advocate on behalf of the local business community in Congress."
