Business Registration Program

About the Program


In an effort to better serve you and the local citizens, the City of Cohoes requires, by law, all local businesses to register with the Office of Community and Economic Development through the Business Registration Program. The Program will enable us to compile a list of contact information and the services/products offered by businesses located in Cohoes.

The purpose of this program is to accomplish the following:
  • Email notification of community events, seminars, etc.
  • Encourage tourism to Cohoes
  • Legitimize local businesses
  • Online listing at the Cohoes Local Development Corporation website
  • Promote local business and the services/products offered
  • Provide contact information in the event of an emergency
Your cooperation in registering with us will be a vital step toward creating an advantageous community partnership. As a business owner, there may be questions you have in regard to tax incentives, land use, available grants, etc. to which our office can help you find answers.

Register Your Business


There is no cost to have your business registered. If changes occur (e.g. addition of a business website, or fax line; added products/services; etc.) please notify the Office so we can make the necessary updates.

To register your business, first download and complete the Business Registration Form (PDF). You may submit your completed form by fax to 518-233-2117 or by mail to:
Community and Economic Development Office
97 Mohawk Street

Once you submit the completed registration form, your business will automatically be listed on the Cohoes Local Development Corporation Website where the business directory for Cohoes is located.
