Empowering Waterford's Small Businesses!

With the support of the Economic Development Commission (EDC), and through the Town of Waterford's Small Business Grant Program funded by the American Rescue Plan Act, we recently awarded 10 small business owners a total of $91,565.01.

The facilitation of the grant program nurtured Waterford's business community, empowered small business owners, and fueled our town's economy.

Show your support for Waterford's small businesses! Shop local, dine local, and spread the word about their incredible products and services. Together, we can continue to drive their success and foster a thriving business community.
