McCaskill Hosts Successful Economic Development and Grant Training Seminar in St. Louis

Session connected area organizations and municipalities with resources and opportunities to compete for federal grant funding

December 15, 2011

ST. LOUIS - Nine agencies with competitive grant funds came together with U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill to help local small businesses and organizations learn how to successfully compete for resources that will help them expand and create jobs.

As part of an ongoing effort, McCaskill hosted a successful Economic Development and Grant Training Workshop in Saint Louis on Monday, December 12.  The forum helped local organizations' access federal grants and loan programs that can be used for public infrastructure, job growth, and business development.

Representatives from multiple agencies were on hand to better educate small businesses, local governments, chambers of commerce, and non-profit organizations on how they can best position themselves to win federal dollars.

Competitive federal grants bring federal assistance to Missouri in an honest and fiscally responsible manner. McCaskill believes helping organizations learn how to access federal dollars through competitive grant programs is an important step in ensuring strong community infrastructure and keeping the awarding of federal dollars transparent.

McCaskill's staff has offered seminars in other parts of the states, including St. Joseph, Cape Girardeau, Springfield, Kansas City, Harrisonville, and Columbia.
