The mission of the Village of Catskill Local Development Corporation (CLDC) is to ensure the long-term viability of the Village of Catskill by creating opportunities for economic and community development. The CLDC is intended to facilitate programs and businesses that allow the Village to have empowerment, independence and control over its own future and destiny.
The best means for completing our mission for the Village of Catskill is a "Holistic Approach." Instead of believing that there is one "silver bullet" to make the Village of Catskill viable for renewal/reinvention we recognize and address five important areas:
- Community Development
- Economic Development
- Preservation/Resource Conservation
- New Technology Development/Implementation
Utilizing this approach allows integration and sense of balance within the cultural, business and social environments that make up the Village of Catskill's identity.
We provide low interest loans to local business in the Village of Catskill
We provide grants to cover all or portions of rent for the first three months for new businesses in the Village of Catskill
We work with other business development groups to provide additional information and resources to new and continuous business in Catskill
