NEW: Central Mass Scores $75,000 for Economic Development

Friday, October 12, 2012

 

The Massachusetts Office of Business Development awarded $950,000 in economic development grants across the Commonwealth, including $75,000 to organizations in Central Mass.

Under the Regional Economic Development Organization (REDO) Grant Program, the funds will go to the Central Regional Economic Development Alliance, a partnership between the Chamber of Central Mass South and the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce.

“Every part of the Commonwealth offers a unique set of industries and opportunities, and the Patrick-Murray Administration is committed to supporting and developing job creation and economic development opportunities throughout the Commonwealth,” said Greg Bialecki, the Secretary of Housing and Economic Development.

“Our long-term economic development plan recognizes the importance of empowering our communities and regions for growth, and these REDO grants are part of that important effort.”

The awards represent a partnership with the Bay State's Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development to cultivate a pro-business climate that stimulates job growth and builds on the core economic strengths of every region. Awards are given through a competitive process, and awardees are chosen based on applicants’ demographics, history, and assessment of applicants’ ability to deliver effective economic development with measurable outcomes.

“By partnering with these organizations across the state, we are able to expand our reach and ensure that businesses get the attention they need to grow to scale in Massachusetts,” said James Ermilio, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Office of Business Development.

“We look forward to seeing these partnerships successfully create new opportunities throughout the Commonwealth.”
