Program Brief:

The Schoharie County Digital Strategies Initiative is a resiliency-based, proven and data supported means to add value to local enterprises. Modeled after national programs, SEEC has initiated this Direct to Business (D2B) effort in response to the Coronavirus. D2B will increase small business access to professional technology services and improve use of digital tools for economic stability and growth.

The program is organized to make grant awards direct to your business that will enable the hiring of digital strategists, content creators and technicians as well as pay for COVID-related expenses. Our goal is to award 75% of each grant toward designing and implementing business specific digital marketing strategies. Grant amounts will be determined based upon scope of work not to exceed thresholds per number of employees, as follows:

Number of Employees, FTE* | Grant Potential
Less than 5 | $25,000
5-9 | $35,000
10-19 | $45,000
20-25 | $65,000
More than 25 | Ineligible

*Full-time equivalent employees (FTE) equal 40 hours per week. Multiple part-time employees may be added together to total 40 hours per week.

  The goal of the program is to stabilize your business, expand customer reach and prioritize digital strategies as a resilient business practice.
