Economic development funding workshop Monday

Workshops on how local businesses can apply for some of the $750 million in economic development funding available statewide will be held Monday from 9-11 a.m. at Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica, and 2-4 p.m. at the Griffiss Institute, 725 Daedalian Drive at Griffiss park.

The workshops, open to businesses in Oneida and Herkimer counties, will be hosted by Mohawk Valley EDGE, according to a Mohawk Valley Regional Economic Development Council announcement.
