ST. PAUL – Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) awarded just over $2.35 million in grants to infrastructure projects in the Greater Minnesota area.
The funding awarded from DEED’s Greater Minnesota Business Development Public Infrastructure Grant Program(BDPI) was approved for the cities of Jackson, St. Joseph and Faribault. It is expected to create an additional 166 full-time jobs and prepare these cities for future growth.
“These grants demonstrate how state government and the private sector can collaborate to create greater opportunity and continued economic growth throughout Minnesota,” said Governor Mark Dayton. “Working together these business expansions will support vibrant communities and create opportunities for growth in Jackson, St. Joseph and Faribault.”
“These cities are laying the groundwork for future economic success while growing their tax base.” said DEED Commissioner Shawntera Hardy. “By utilizing these BDPI grants cities around the state are improving their local economies.”
