NEXT is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the success and growth of Herkimer County, focused on making it a thriving community for residents, businesses, municipalities, and visitors.

All of the towns and villages within Herkimer County fall within their geographic area. ┬áThe organization’s vision is to improve Herkimer County and facilitate the relationships, assets, and resources that will make that happen.

By empowering villages and towns that need assistance accessing grants and funding, NEXT can contribute to their growth, development, and overall well-being. They can also assist them with project budgeting, reporting, and community outreach initiatives.

Michele Hummel is the Executive Director of NEXT, and in this podcast, she explains their activities in detail.
