“The Steuben County IDA’s staff is knowledgeable about the local business incentive programs and helped provide introductions and facilitate those conversations. They streamlined our efforts and provided a PILOT agreement and a low interest loan, which helped make our project financially viable. Without those incentives, we would not have developed the project in Corning. The Steuben County IDA staff and board of directors are knowledgeable, well-connected business people. They provided the support we needed to make our new venture a reality.”

-Christina Schneider, Purcell Construction
