Counties & Cities in Region 6W
Access to public funding resources is important to the development of the region. Many of our communities lack time and staff to research ideas apply for public grants and loans to help finance their projects. Plus, funding sources and their programs frequently change. As your liaison to state and federal agencies, UMVRDC has direct, on-going contact with a variety of funding sources and can help you:
• Assess your project’s needs and help organize goals and objectives
• Target the most appropriate sources of funding
• Prepare and submit loan and grant application proposals
We have even set up a cost share program designed to assist with the cost of some of our services!
Below are some resources & opportunities that you might find useful. Please pass on this information to others you know. If our office can help in any way please do not hesitate to contact us!
