The Christian County Economic Development Corporation recently learned of the denial of an application they had submitted with the Economic Development Administration for funding to help boost economic development in the region. CCEDC Director Mary Renner says the group isn’t giving up yet however, and intend to re-submit another application with the EDA.
According to Renner the denial came as a shock to the CCEDC, saying they were lead to believe that their application would be approved.
Renner states that in the denial letter, the EDA informed the CCEDC of a number of requirements of the application that were not met that the group was either unaware of, or was told were optional.
The denial letter isn’t the end of the group’s quest for additional money to help bolster development in Christian County, as they intend to re-submit an additional application with the EDA. Hopefully with more guidance from the EDA’s Regional Office Director.
Renner also stated there are still a number of different promising projects that may make their way to Christian County and to Taylorville, bringing more jobs and money to the area.
Renner appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
