CONCORD ó Rep. Larry Kissell (NC-08) announced a $100,000 U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration grant for Central Park NC, which includes Rowan County.
The grant will be used to help foster economic development and increase private investment by supporting small and mid-sized businesses.
ěIím so proud we were able to secure this important funding for our region,î Kissell said. ěBringing more of our hard-earned tax dollars back home to the district will better our communities, stimulating local economic growth and small business opportunities. Iíll continue to fight to bring our tax dollars back home to help get our economy back on track.î
In addition to Rowan, the Central Park NC region includes Anson, Davidson, Montgomery, Moore, Randolph, Richmond and Stanly counties. The group works to promote a new economy based on the sustainable use of the natural and cultural resources of the Central Park NC region, particularly in innovation, agriculture and clean energy industries.
ěCongressman Kissell has always been incredibly supportive of small business in our area, and has also been a great supporter of promoting the regionís outdoor recreational activities,î said Central Park NC Executive Director Dr. Nancy Gottovi. ěWe are grateful for his work to secure this EDA funding for Central Park NC.î
