Want Up To $50K To Start Or Move A Business? Carnegie Wants You!

PITTSBURGH (NEWSRADIO 1020 KDKA) — How would you like free money to start or move a business? If you open or expand in Carnegie, Pa., you could be eligible for grants of up to 25 percent of total project costs, not to exceed $50,000.

Not too many communities are paying people to start a business, but Leigh White, Executive Director of the Carnegie Community Development Corporation, tells KDKA AM’s Larry and John that she is doing just that with the Business Attraction Grant Program.

Sound too good to be true? Larry and John also talk to Bob Marshall, who is opening Bob’s Diner in Carnegie, thanks to the grant he got from Leigh White.

Want to find out how you can take advantage of this grant? Visit the CCDC site for more info.

    That wouldn’t cover the first years shoplifting!

    I’m sorry but these local communities are all in economic trouble, putting lipstick on a pig is still a pig. The durgs that lead to crimes against businesses in these areas have scared them away. The malls in Robinson, Bridgeville and Walmarts have also contributed to the exodus of customers from these areas.

    This is just another program throwing good money after bad.

  3. Rob says:

    Carnegie like most small business communities is up against the malls and Walmart. Lack of suitable parking, drugs that lead to crimes against these businesses all contribute to its downfall. As they say, putting lipstick on a pig you still have a pig. The economy, lack of jobs and poor infrastructure have all made this a bad situation for small business.

    This is another program of throwing good money after bad.

    Its better that this money is going to someone willing to try do to better them selfs and not to someone that just sits around and wait for a hand out.

  5. Marie says:

    I agree, Tim. Find one other organization or community handing money out for new businesses right now. I think it’s another great perk about being in the Burgh. Plus, Rob, there are many of us avoiding malls and Walmart – both for ethical and, frankly, the annoyance factor. Looking forward to hoping over to Carnegie soon to see what’s new.
