APPROVED FOR RELEASE: MICATU WINS NEW YORK STATE (CFA) $1M GRANT FOR EXPANSION
December 30, 2016 - Micatu Wins New York State Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) grant of $1 million for expansion in the Southern Tier.
Micatu was recently awarded a $1 million grant from the Empire State Development Grants Program to help facilitate the move. State officials require an estimate of how many jobs will be created before awarding grants, and Micatu came up with a projection of 79 new jobs. That's a very conservative estimate, according to Chief Operating Officer Michael Jagielski. "This is the equivalent of Silicon Valley East. We create high-tech jobs for our kids here," Jagielski said.
