The Jefferson County Board of Legislators and Jefferson County Economic Development are partnering to offer grants to small businesses within Jefferson County, New York to increase their productivity.

Small Business Productivity Improvement Grant.  Given the challenges of recruiting and retaining skilled workers, some businesses have turned to the use of new or updated technologies that allow them to maintain the same level of productivity despite having fewer employees.  This may include the use of kiosks for placing orders, automated equipment, and other devices or equipment to help existing employees be more productive.  This program will provide locally owned and operated, existing businesses with 25 full time equivalent employees or less with grants of up to $10,000 to purchase devices or equipment designed to improve productivity and/or efficiency at the Jefferson County business site.  The business must provide 20% of the funding themselves.  JCLDC will provide 80% of the cost, up to a maximum amount of $10,000 per business. A total of $250,000 is available to small businesses through this program.

Funds may be used for:
Equipment, Technologies and Software to help existing employees be more productive.  There may be additionally eligible funding criteria.
