Dear Business Owners,

The Village of Scotia is pleased to announce the ARPA Business grant program.  This effort is intended to assist businesses in our community to make improvements that will have a positive effect in the village.  Attached is a summary of what types of projects are eligible, who is eligible to apply and what businesses are not eligible to participate.  Also attached is a copy of the application form.

The Village has allocated $50,000 in ARPA funding for this project.  The program application process will run from February 1st until February 28th.  The grants will be rewarded on a first come first serve basis with project completion dates expected to be no later than December 1, 2023.  In order to be eligible, you must meet the attached criteria for participation and submit a completed application with requested funding to cover the scope of work that range from $500 to $5,000.

Grant applications will be reviewed for consistency to the criteria outlined, and awards will be made up to the amount requested on an ongoing basis.  We encourage those eligible businesses to take advantage of this program.  This is the first step in what we hope will be a renewed effort to provide opportunities for improvement and expansion of existing businesses as well as create opportunities for new businesses to call Scotia home.

If you have questions or seek additional assistance in participating in this program, please contact Mayor Bucciferro at 518-374-3195.  Please mail completed applications to:
