Initiatives Supporting Our Communities . . .

Exploring Public Transportation Options
Understanding that transportation is often a barrier to sustainable employment, we partner with human service agencies, healthcare, transportation providers, government agencies, transportation consultants and others to recommend public transportation options in the county. 

Leaderful Delaware Emerging Leaders Program
Our nine-month program prepares the next generation of civic leaders to drive community change.

WIOX Community Radio 91.3FM
We manage the business operations of WIOX, supporting the efforts of nearly 80 community volunteers who serve as program hosts and back-office staff to keep this important source of information and entertainment broadcasting.

Toys For Tots
Collaborating with Delaware Opportunities and over 30 businesses, government agencies, and organizations, our annual campaign collected and distributed 2200 toys to Delaware County families.

Advocating for Business and Community Prosperity . . .

Gas Tax Reduction
We successfully lobbied the Delaware County Board of Supervisors to reformulate the method to calculate County sales tax on fuel purchases, reducing the cost to business owners and consumers by nearly ten cents per gallon.

COVID-19 Capital Costs Tax Credit Program
Working with business advocacy groups across New York State, we successfully lobbied Governor Hochul and the State Legislature to enact a program providing tax credit of 50% of qualifying expenses up to a maximum of $25,000 in tax credits based on qualifying expenses of $50,000.
