The Albany County Legislature, in partnership with the Albany County Executive Dan McCoy and the Community Loan Fund of the Capital Region fast-tracked grants to 132 businesses impacted by COVID. The grants were awarded to small businesses all over the county, from every industry, from dining to retail. Here, business owners in Bethlehem share how COVID has hurt their businesses and how the grants will help them recover. (Unmasked photos were taken prior to COVID-19.)
The Albany County COVID-19 Grant program also assisted businesses in downtown Albany, Central Avenue and Colonie, Latham, and Guilderland and Altamont. We will continue to post additional stories from businesses in Watervliet, Cohoes, and more!
