Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:
Pitt
Description:

The purpose of this grant is to support FoR ENC’s efforts in providing direct technical assistance to seven communities in eastern NC (Ayden, Edenton, Hertford, Murfreesboro, Plymouth, Red Springs and Tarboro) who have expressed an interest in alternative approaches to economic and community development that best leverage their assets and address their unique needs. Over a two year period, each community will develop a blueprint for action, build capacity, and connect to existing initiatives and resources, and pursue other developing opportunities as applicable. Concurrently, FoR ENC will develop a management plan for its IBX initiative for eastern N.C. that looks to brand and market the region not only as an attractive place to visit but as an attractive place to locate “creative economy” businesses and individuals.
