    Hello, are there details on how the proposed $750,000 for economic development will be spent?

    Kristin asked 7 months ago

    The $750,000 is allocated among three different programs: $350,000 for economic empowerment, $300,000 for downtown improvements, and $100,000 for small businesses. Economic empowerment will focus on supporting entrepreneurs, local artists and cultural organizations, and building stronger partnerships with the University and colleges. Downtown improvement funds have been used to support the creation of the Drake. The small business funds are supporting start up grants, growth grants, and technical assistance.

    Thank you
