Electric City Downtown Receives
Missouri Main Street Connection (MMSC) is proud to announce the receipt of a Rural Community Development Initiative grant from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). This grant will allow MMSC to partner with USDA on the My Community Matters initiative in select-targeted communities. The RCDI grant program helps community-based development organizations promote economic development in low-income rural communities. This grant is awarded to MMSC, a non-profit entity that has proven skills in economic development and rural job creation. MMSC will provide matching funds for the program.
MMSC unveiled the My Community Matters program on January 28th in Jefferson City at the Capital Building. Representatives from the communities targeted by the grant were in attendance as well as the legislators for these communities.
MMSC State Director Gayla Roten noted, “MMSC looks forward to working with both USDA and Missouri communities to implement this program and help build sustainable communities through downtown revitalization. Without our valuable partners, this program would not possible.”
