National Grid Investment Helps Adirondack North Country Association Build Foundation for Regional Business Growth

December, 2018

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – National Grid and the Adirondack North Country Association announce a $25,000 Strategic Economic Development Program incentive from National Grid.

ANCA is an independent, non-profit organization that works to build dynamic, local economies that sustain thriving communities in northern New York.

The incentive helps ANCA offset the $72,000 in project costs associated with a strategic analysis of the economic drivers to attract entrepreneurs and businesses to the 14-county Adirondack North Country region. The analysis will create a blueprint to inform existing businesses, focus philanthropic investments, support the efforts of academic institutions to attract and retain students, and enhance business development, attraction and investment. The analysis will also enable organizations to make more targeted and informed decisions when developing and investing in jobs programs including:

- Identifying the opportunities over the next five years for job growth and business expansion in the region’s eco-economy;

- Understanding the trends, identifying opportunities and making recommendations to leverage strengths and attract new business and entrepreneurs to the region; and

- Using the research to guide organizations working to attract critical investments to the region.
