North Elba Local Enhancement and Advancement Fund
The North Elba LEAF is a fund available annually to grant applicants that are non-profits, local governments, and public sector organizations that serve the Town of North Elba community. Monies for the fund are derived from a dedicated 2% Essex County occupancy tax that was implemented by the Essex County Board of Supervisors in June of 2020.
The North Elba LEAF prioritizes projects that meet the mission of the fund and are catalysts for new programming or offerings for the community. LEAF grants are not intended to fund current iterations of programs for eligible organizations. This program is intended for one time project funding and is not for recurring annual expenses or operational costs. The committee agrees at the inception of LEAF to create a capital project fund; the total of this fund will be determined annually at an annual budget meeting.
