On Monday, April 27, 2020, the Niagara County Community College (NCCC) Small Business Development Center (SBDC) was awarded a grant from the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation. The grant award total was for $36,300.00, part of the Foundation’s COVID-19 Small Business Relief Fund. Thanks to this timely funding award, the Niagara SBDC will be able to offer Niagara County businesses emergency relief services. These services include expert consultation on E-Commerce development, free participation in a multiple-part small business crisis management webinar series, and individual advisement on enhanced marketing sales techniques. Through this project, the Niagara SBDC anticipates supporting as many as 120 local small businesses.
The Niagara SBDC remains open remotely through the COVID-19 pandemic, assisting clients over the phone, via email and in online meetings.
