WBC Board Recommends Approval Of $18.9 Million for 32 Communities

The Wyoming Business Council's Board of Director's met in Cheyenne and recommended approval of 40 projects, impacting 32 communities with an estimated $18.9 million in state and federal funding and $5.3 million invested by communities as a match. Business Council Co-Chair Clarene Law comments on the recent meeting.

The City of Sheridan received $25,000 in Community Development Block Grant funding for a senior citizens council planning grant. The community match is $8,333.

The Town of Ranchester received $300,000 in CDBG funding to enhance the town's entryway and downtown. The board also recommended for approval a $489,500 Business Ready Communities grant, which still must go before SLIB for final decision. The community match comes from $44,500 in-kind funds and another $145,000 in Mineral Royalty funds. Award of the CDBG application is not contingent on SLIB approval of the BRC grant.
