Meeting your needs in challenging times.


During these challenging times, National Grid’s Economic Development Department is dedicated to maintaining a high level of service and support to customers and clients across our service territory.

Whether you need access to our Online Application System or wish to speak to a member of our team we remain as committed as ever to helping businesses with our economic development programs, services and expertise.

National Grid is streamlining its existing NY Public Service Commission approved Manufacturing Productivity Economic Development grants to help manufacturers who need assistance to develop new products or implement lean manufacturing, to produce critical items to support the pandemic response. Funding will be made available to eligible manufacturers working with their regional NY State Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) centers on eligible activities. For more information and complete details on the program please click here for Upstate New York manufacturers and click here for Downstate New York manufacturers.
