Beginning on June 6, State Representatives Will Stop in Utica, Troy, Buffalo, and Rochester to Highlight State Programs and Services to Help Small Businesses Succeed

Part of Governor's Ongoing Commitment to Supporting New York's Small Business Community

Businesses Can Register to Attend Here   

Governor Kathy Hochul today announced the launch of a new small business outreach effort, led by the New York State Department of Labor, to help connect entrepreneurs to no-cost supports and services. As part of the Governor's continued commitment to these vital economic contributors, representatives from the New York State Department of Labor, Departments of State and Tax and Finance, the Workers' Compensation Board, and Empire State Development will traverse the state to provide important information to small business owners on licensing, regulations, taxes, grants, training, and more.

"Small businesses are the core of New York's economy - creating local jobs, reenergizing neighborhoods, and bringing communities together," Governor Hochul said. "We are excited to bring no-cost resources directly to small businesses across the state to ensure they get the support they deserve."

New York State Department of Labor Commissioner Roberta Reardon said, "Our small businesses are the heartbeat of communities and play a vital role in our economy. The New York State Department of Labor offers a variety of no-cost resources that can help small businesses remain competitive in the global market. I encourage entrepreneurs to attend one of these sessions to learn more about how New York State can help you be successful." 

The tour features stops in Utica, Troy, Rochester, and Buffalo, and is part of New York State's effort to advance, support, and strengthen smaller operations that continue to have a significant economic impact in their local communities.
