The Albany County Legislature, in partnership with the Albany County Executive Dan McCoy and the Community Loan Fund of the Capital Region fast-tracked $500,000 worth of grants to 132 businesses impacted by COVID. The grants were awarded across the county to small businesses from every industry, from dining to retail. Here, business owners located in Downtown Albany share how COVID has hurt their businesses and how these grants will help them recover.
The Albany County COVID-19 Grant program also assisted businesses in Central Avenue and Colonie, Bethlehem, Slingerlands, Latham, Guilderland and Altamont. We will continue to post additional stories from businesses in Watervliet, Cohoes, and more!
