Two years ago, Jodi Terwilliger used a $15,000 microenterprise grant from the village of Homer to expand her dress inventory and advertise her bridal business.
Megan Williams used a similar $10,000 grant to buy new equipment at her hair salon, Prima Studio.
The money has helped get more people through the door. The village board plans to award a second round of microenterprise grants next week to three village businesses.
“When I first got the money and all the lines in I was getting girls from Buffalo and Cazenovia coming here for dresses,” Terwilliger said.
