Champlain Bridge Business Assistance Center
The Albany regional SBDC under the University at Albany's School of Business is in the process of opening the Champlain Bridge Business Assistance Center, an "emergency outreach office" in upstate New York's Crown Point region. The Albany SBDC is collaborating with North Country SBDC located at SUNY Plattsburgh to provide staff for counseling and outreach efforts to impacted businesses in the region. There is a strong need for educating and counseling business owners around the region that have experienced a downturn from the closure and demolition of the Champlain Bridge. Also, the SBDC will provide assistance to dislocated workers that no longer can afford the commute to jobs in Vermont and are interested in starting a business.
