Is your county or region experiencing economic challenges due to the contraction of the coal industry? Searching for tools and resources related to economic diversification, job creation or workforce training? If so, consider applying to attend a workshop this fall that addresses all of these topics and more.
The National Association of Counties and the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) Research Foundation, with support from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) are pleased to announce the second of three workshops being hosted throughout 2015 to support counties and regions impacted by the contraction of the coal industry. The goal of each workshop is to help boost the innovative potential of coal-reliant counties and regions seeking to grow and diversify their economies.
Note: this program is not limited to coal-producing counties. Places that are home to coal-fired power plants, coal processing facilities and transportation hubs are encouraged to apply.
The application to attend the Grand Junction, Colorado workshop is now open and will remain open until Friday, July 17th at 5:00 p.m. EDT.
