Region 9 receives $61K from the Economic Development Administration for planning efforts

May 26, 2015

The Region 9 Economic Development District has been approved to receive $61K in planning and technical assistance funds through the Economic Development Administration (EDA).

The funding has been given annually to Region 9, in varying amounts to support economic development planning efforts and partner with community groups, governments, and the private sector, to accomplish special projects and provide technical support. This includes assisting local communities in updating Community Profiles and Community Development Action Plans (CDAPs), and other needed data compilation.

"This EDA funding has been key to allowing staff to work with the Four Corners Film Office and county-level economic development groups," said Laura Lewis Marchino, assistant director of Region 9.

"EDA provides us with funding that allows us to be flexible supporting projects that are of economic benefit to a community."
