More Grants Headed to Communities
Cheyenne, Wy – There are now five projects that have received grants from the state's Business Ready Community Program. The State Loan and Investment Board gave its approval Monday for proposals made by Washakie County, the town of Shoshoni, and the City of Riverton. The Business Ready Community program is the centerpiece of Governor Freudenthal's economic development plans and he says these are the types of projects he envisioned. Freudenthal says Riverton's plan for a new building for the Brunton Company was something he talked about during his campaign.
The three projects approved Monday all fall under the Business Committed heading of the program, projects to help existing businesses expand. 15 Community Readiness proposals, those for future business growth, will be considered by the Business Council in June.
