BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Buffalo Business Blitz is continuing to help small, local businesses by giving out small business grants of up to $2,500.

Despite the name of the program, all Erie County businesses are eligible.

The Westminster Economic Development Initiative is administering the money. Executive Director Carolynn Welch spoke with News 4.

She said the fundraising goal is $500,000, which would allow grants for 200 businesses.
