In the Middle of It All

MCRC encourages business growth and stimulates economic development within Middlesex County

Bridge Bucks Program

The Middlesex County Revitalization Commission administers a new two-year funding program for retail, retail services, and restaurant businesses located in East Haddam and Haddam. The Bridge Bucks program is a fun way to incentivize customers to re-visit the businesses affected by the Swing Bridge closures and rotary construction on Route 154.

Applications opened March 11, 2024, and are approved on a rolling basis. 

Business Operating Grants

The Middlesex County Revitalization Commission provides grants of up to $25,000 to qualified small businesses in Middlesex County. The grants are designed to provide operating assistance for small businesses, allowing them to continue operations and keep residents employed.  

Working collaboratively to encourage growth.

The Middlesex County Revitalization Commission (MCRC) represents the 15 cities and towns in Middlesex County. 

As a whole, the County is home to businesses in every industry—manufacturing, healthcare, retail, hospitality, fintech, the arts, marine, professional services, education, food and beverage, agriculture, and tourism—yet each municipality is unique in its history, government structure, and business communities. 

MCRC is comprised of the chief executive official, or their delegate, from each of the municipalities, along with the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce, working collaboratively to further the mission of encouraging business growth and stimulating economic development through a broad range of services and resources.
