GRANT FUNDED TO ENHANCE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING FOR RURAL COMMUNITIES TO RESIDENT SENIORS
Apr 20, 2011 -- 

Outline Of Need:

Rural Wyoming has many communities that do not have technical expertise to develop business growth, meet housing needs, or enhance community facilities for their towns.

How Rural Development Helped:

Rural Development provided $251,706 in grant funding to provide hands on training to town and municipality leaders to address the needs of their communities in the areas of business, housing, and community facilities.

This was a dollar-for-dollar match with other funding partners across the state. Total cost of the project was $503,412 over two years.

The Results:

To date, 13 communities have received updated assessments to develop strategic planning. Twenty one people in seven communities have received Engineering Leadership training. Fifty people from 22 communities have received municipality training in board responsibilities; grant writing, outreach, working with local business training, and public participation guidance.

Over the next 16 months the Wyoming Community Network and their partners anticipate providing this training and other necessary training to all 43 communities— creating job growth, home ownership, and enhancing community services thus enhancing the lives in Rural America in Wyoming.
