Brewery among regional development grant recipients

ALBANY -- The cash is about to flow from the State Treasury now that Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has announced this year's recipients of Regional Economic Development Council Awards.

Here are some food- and drink-related grants for the greater Capital Region and the North Country. The Cap Region, incidentally, got relatively little in the way of this largesse, despite having numerous requests on file.

Statewide, the list is very long. Feel free to do your own research if you want to see any other projects. The information is downloadable here.  

Albany/Rensselaer/Schenectady Counties

$52,800 for Senior Services of Albany Inc. to provide on-the-job training for 12 newly-hired workers in culinary skills and food handling safety.  

Columbia County

$82,800 for Columbia County Economic Development to aid four existing producers and processors with expansion projects in the county: Hudson-Chatham Winery, Ghent; Beth's Farm Kitchen, Stuyvesant; Pampered Cow, Ghent; Chatham Brewing, Chatham.  

Essex County

$300,000 for the Adirondack Meat Company to construct and equip a U.S. Department of Agriculture slaughterhouse and meat-processing facility in Ticonderoga that will return processed meat to area farmers. An additional $165,000 will go to the Essex County Industrial Development Agency to assist the Adirondack Meat Company with its project.  

Schoharie County

$475,000 to assist farms and agribusinesses in the county affected by recent natural disasters. Funding will be used to purchase up-to-date technology equipment, and inventory, as well as working capital.  

Warren County

$50,000 to help Davidson Brothers Inc. to expand by replacing its current production from a Maine brewery with a 50-barrel brewing system in Glens Falls.
