Lamont announces new CT business assistance

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont has announced that the first proposals he is submitting to the Connecticut General Assembly during the 2020 legislative session will be a package of reforms aimed at retooling the Department of Economic and Community Development’s business assistance programs.

The governor is proposing two initiatives that support job creation but also ensure taxpayer funds are protected: Jobs CT – a performance-based incentive program for businesses to expand or relocate jobs to Connecticut – and Small Business Express 2.0 – a new phase of the state’s popular program that helps small businesses. more
