About this grant

This renewal grant provides partial support for the Genesee Area Focus Fund and its supported organization, the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce, to increase their capacity to conduct economic development and education initiatives. Unlike most traditional chamber of commerce organizations, the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce serves as the area’s economic development agency and as a direct provider of educational programming. As the regional economy continues to transition, there is a need for increased capacity for business and government leaders to work together to retain and create jobs and investment.
