HEALTH TIPS FOR HOLIDAY PARTIES
We’ve just rung in the New Year! And, many of us may still have holiday parties with friends, family and co-workers ahead of us. In fact, January is often the month we all catch up with people we couldn’t see in the final weeks of the prior year.

CONNECTICUT'S SMALL BUSINESS EXPRESS PROGRAM CAN PROVIDE MATCHING GRANTS FOR SOME BUSINESSES

The grant portion of the program has generated the most interest among our firm's clients, and some have received grant funds to buy equipment. The grants are matching, which means the small business must be able to provide a dollar for dollar match to the grant from DECD. These grants vary from $10,000 to a maximum of $100,000.
