The Partnership for Community Development (PCD), the Village of Hamilton, and Good Nature Brewing have been working together to seek funding through the New York State's Community Development Block Grant program (CDBG) for the brewery’s exciting expansion project (http://www.goodnaturebrewing.com/expansion-project/). We just recently learned, $241,000 of grant funding has been awarded to help Good Nature Brewery move their plans forward.
This is a win for all involved and the project will immediately create an additional 16 full-time jobs, while retaining 10 existing jobs as well as any number of part-time, temporary, and seasonal positions ranging from production, packaging, warehouse to lab work, research, sales and marketing.
As the grant sub-recipient (the Village of Hamilton is the recipient), part of the funds will be repaid to the PCD for use on other economic development programs, so we can thank GNB for helping to promote and encourage other local businesses in Hamilton!
We hope the expansion of Good Nature Brewery serves as a model and inspiration for other new and exciting businesses to join our Hamilton. We welcome entrepreneurial enterprises to Hamilton and look forward to working with other new and existing businesses in their creative business pursuits.
