Energy efficiency programs, electric vehicle initiatives and special services help to support local businesses and hundreds of local jobs that further contribute to the recovery.
Central Hudson’s Back to Business funding program is providing up to $1 million in support to local small businesses by helping to pay down new working capital loans taken with participating local banks.
