Jeff City site grant
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe have announced grants to nine communities who will collectively receive more than $1.3 million in Site Development Grant funding. The grants are designed to help communities achieve Select Tennessee site certification and prepare industrial sites for economic development projects. The funding helps communities invest in infrastructure and engineering improvements on project-ready sites. “For communities looking to attract new industry, having shovel-ready sites is crucial,” Rolfe said. “TNECD is excited about the newest round of Site Development Grant recipients. Five of the new grantees are in rural counties that have not fully benefitted from Tennessee’s broader economic gains. Attracting industry to these communities remains one of TNECD’s utmost priorities, and I’m confident these grants will help position them to attract quality, family wage jobs.” Among the recipients is the Industrial Development Board of Jefferson City. The $500,000 will be used to grade approximately 25 acres and improve site access at the Hunt Property.
