FoJo Beans

When FoJo Beans applied for a small grant from the Partnership for Community Development, they were told almost immediately to go for something bigger, to aim to fit a coffee niche in the Hamilton community. Joseph described the help from the PCD by saying: “The village administration has been incredibly supportive, the Hamilton Initiative has been incredibly supportive, the university has been incredibly supportive, but it was the PCD that was not only supportive but pushed us and said ‘we are moving you forward.’” 

Good Nature Brewery

When Good Nature was building the 12B Farm Brewery, they collaborated with the Partnership for Community Development to secure funding for their pretreatment facility for the brewery’s wastewater. The funds were split between a grant and a loan, and allowed for the efficient building of an unforeseen expense. Good Nature now treats all of their wastewater on site so as not to overwhelm the village’s treatment center. 

Kriemhild Dairy

Kriemhild is currently undergoing expansion using CDBG funds awarded by the Partnership for Community Development. Rivington explains how the PCD has helped the company over the years with a combination of “grants, loans, and networking.” Funds from the PCD have been used to buy various tanks and other production equipment as well as for the installation of the equipment.

Around town you'll see signs encouraging mask wearing and social distancing. These are part of the Stay Safe, Stay Local campaign created by the Partnership For Community Development, encouraging residents to support our local businesses and stay safe while doing so.

Businesses that have taken the Safe Business Pledge - agreeing to use and enforce NYS COVID-19 regulations at all times - will have a sign indicating the commitment in their window.

Want to show support but don't own a business? Wear a button! The PCD, Scrap Paper Social and the Hamilton Public Library collaborated to create *free* buttons for community members who support the campaign. You can pick one of these up at the Hamilton Public Library, the 11 Payne St. Welcome Center, or at participating businesses.

Are you a business owner still in need of Stay Safe, Stay Local campaign materials? Stop by the 11 Payne St. Welcome Center; all the materials you need are there.

Thanks to everyone who is working hard to promote a culture of safety and kindness in Hamilton. It takes all of us.

Stay Safe, Stay Local!
