New York State Grants

Grants Catered To Your Needs

Intro New York State

Empire State Development, New York’s economic development agency, administers the Women and Minority-Owned Business Enterprise (WMBE) state certification program. The WMBE Program is designed to assist the growth and development of businesses owned and controlled by women and minorities. An important activity of the program is to increase the participation of those businesses in New York State procurement opportunities.
Being certified as a woman or minority-owned business would only work for you if you use it. It is not a passive exercise. You need to integrate it into your overall marketing plan and use it to gain access to business opportunities with New York State agencies and authorities. Successfully identifying business opportunities start and end with the State agency most likely to use your products and/or services.
