Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet recently announced that the Region 10 League for Economic Assistance and Planning received a $54,900 competitive partnership planning grant from the Economic Development Administration (EDA) to fund planning and technical assistance to implement its economic development strategy. The Region 10 League's comprehensive strategy brings public and private sectors together to help communities throughout the region build their economies and meet development goals.
"This investment in the region will help these communities move forward with innovative projects as they craft a strategy to support job creation," Bennet said.
The Region 10 League for Economic Assistance and Planning includes Delta, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, Ouray, and San Miguel counties and is a non-profit organization that provides cost-effective programs and services to reduce the burden of local governments, meet community needs and leverage available resources. It is one of 14 economic development districts in the state.
The EDA is a program of the U.S. Department of Commerce that works to promote economic development nationwide by promoting innovation and regional collaboration. This project will be matched with funds from local governments.blog comments powered by Disqus
