Oconto County awarded WEDC grant
MADISON, Wis. — State Rep. John Nygren, R-Marinette, said Tuesday he was pleased a WEDC Entrepreneurship Support grant was awarded to the Oconto County Economic Development Corporation.
“Only 11 Entrepreneurship Support Grants were awarded throughout the state, showcasing how strong the county has become in our economic development efforts,” Nygren said. “This major accomplishment would not have been possible without the passionate individuals advocating for our county, working towards attracting more talent and businesses to our great community.”
The Economic Support Grants are aimed at supporting local and regional economic development efforts in the state of Wisconsin. The dollars are used to assist counties and local regional development groups to foster attractive environments for economic development in Wisconsin.
