This Golden LEAF grant will support efforts of UNC-Chapel Hill to identify businesses for recruitment and expansion in Siler City and provide marketing materials for use in attracting those companies. The project builds on efforts already underway in Chatham County to create an economic development strategy for the County. Siler City has been particularly hard hit by the recent economic downturn, suffering seven plant closings and one major layoff in the recent years. In addition, because of its distance form the Triangle area, Siler City faces economic challenges disproportionate to those faced by other parts of Chatham County.
