MUNITY THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, JULY 26, 2017 WASHINGTON -- U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp, a member of the Senate Committee on Small Business & Entrepreneurship, recently an- nounced $70,000 in federal funding to the Red River Regional De- velopment Council in Grafton to better coordinate resources to diversify and strengthen the area's economy. "Moving our rural economies forward takes the forward thinking that economic development councils, like the Red River Regional De- velopment Council, provide," said Heitkamp. "While we do not always know what economic challenges will occur, it is important that we plan to grow our economies by supporting the strategic development of small businesses and public works projects that fit the needs of communi- ties. The federal funding announced today will help develop an eco- nomic growth strategy for the Northeastern North Dakota counties of Grand Forks, Nelson, Pembina, and Walsh so that residents in these communities continue the high standards of living they enjoy. Despite all of the critical investments from the Economic Development Ad- ministration to support North Dakota communities, the president's budg- et would eliminate the agency and the funding it provides that has helped support growth of rural economies all over our state." The federal funds are made available through the Economic De- velopment Administration (EDA), a bureau of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Unfortunately this strategic investment would be eliminated under the president's budget. According to EDA, there have been over $34 million dollars in direct investments from EDA to North Dakota since just 2009, largely all of it to rural areas that spurred more than $478 million in private investment in North Dakota.
