Business Participation Information

Schenectady County Clerk John Woodward is partnering with Schenectady County and the Veteran Service Agency to recognize the service and sacrifices made by our veterans, and we would like to invite you to help us with a very important initiative that is taking place throughout our county, the “RETURN THE FAVOR” Discount Program (Find & Assist Veterans of Record).

The RETURN THE FAVOR Discount Program provides veterans and active duty military with a discount on purchases or services at participating County merchants. Eligible individuals would receive a picture I.D. card, identifying them as a returning veteran, or they would have a VA or Military ID. Participating county merchants would agree to honor the card by providing holders with a discount of their choice

Participating businesses will be provided with an attractive window sign identifying the merchant as a participant of this most admirable initiative. Additionally, the business’s name, address and discount will be listed on the Schenectady County RETURN THE FAVOR website. Involvement in the program will allow businesses to show their support for our veterans and active military and will be undoubtedly increase traffic and sales.

You can sign-up to participate as a supporting business by filling out our Online Application. Please join us in demonstrating our sincere appreciation and support for the efforts of those who keep us safe and fight for our freedom!
