The Mohawk Valley can offer a variety of incentives aimed at helping businesses; both international companies looking to move, as well as locally owned small businesses looking to grow. By making available loans, grants, and tax credits, the Mohawk Valley supports its businesses by addressing their needs and promoting their development.

Our staff has direct access and in-depth understanding of incentives and loans, and we work closely with the state of New York to package incentive proposals targeted to the needs of individual businesses.
