OOC is working closely with SUNY Oswego and Cayuga Community College, the two eligible Start-Up NY colleges in Oswego County, to facilitate the Start-Up NY initiative.

All SUNY campuses are designated as "tax-free communities" providing abatement (not credit) of New York state sales, property and business taxes, in addition to no income tax for employees for a period of 10 years. To qualify for the Start-Up NY initiative, candidates must be a new start-up, a business relocating from outside NY state, or an expanding business creating net new jobs.
