Dawson Awarded EDA Investment
It was just announced that Dawson has been awarded $1,189,500 in grant funds from the Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA).
This EDA investment constructs critical roadway and related infrastructure to upgrade an existing 40-acre industrial park and to construct a new 65-acre industrial park nearby. The project also includes a new wastewater pretreatment facility to allow industrial expansion and make possible growth in the city’s agricultural processing cluster.
This project is expected to create 137 jobs and leverage more than $35 million in private investment over the next nine years.
UMVRDC Senior Planner Jacki Anderson has worked closely with the City of Dawson for nearly two years on this project, helping the city with grant writing and development of the project.
