Small Business Assistance Program

The program provides grants and incentives to help support the needs of area small businesses and non-profit organizations – with fewer than 50 employees – in the Mohawk Valley region. Proposals that are received and meet the criteria will be considered. The process is non-competitive. The committee recommends qualifying applications to the Genesis Group Board of Trustees for final approval

Submit your proposal and include the following:

* If selected, you will be asked to show proof of how the grant was used.
* Past nominees (not awardees) may re-apply.

Supporting Small Businesses


“I believe this is an important program that helps support area businesses and non-profit organizations. The funding and incentives being donated will support those businesses and applications that meet the program’s criteria. I believe that Genesis along with its partners, are making a positive impact for businesses in our region.”

Raymond J. Durso, Jr., Genesis Group President & CEO

Grant Recipients working together...

One of the recipients of the third round of Small Business Assistance grants, Alex Nicolette of Bloom Nutrition Solutions, plans to use her grant towards a website, working with one of the recipients of the first round of Small Business Assistance grants, Leigh Ann Dillon of Hilltop Marketing

This is a great example of The Genesis Group’s mission of unity, cooperation, and growth by facilitating community support of businesses both large and small. That’s what this program aims to do.
