3 Rivers Communications has created a new grant program to help our local communities fund expansion of their economic development efforts.  The Economic Development Training Grant Program will award up to $500 to an organization to assist with costs associated for training and education.

Grants available through this program will help facilitate economic development by providing access to new ideas and creative approaches to promote community growth, specifically by funding attendance at relevant conferences and bringing in speakers.

Starting January 1, 2019 Economic Development Training Grant will be awarded monthly. Applicants must be a bona-fide community organization and are required to follow up with 3 Rivers by providing a written assessment of the benefit of the event attended or presentation of the speaker.

Dave Gibson, General Manager/CEO said, “These grants support our commitment to helping our rural communities not only survive but thrive by encouraging economic development and advancing prosperity. In addition to offering communications services to rural areas, 3 Rivers is dedicated to enhancing the lives and improving the communities we serve through numerous opportunities such as the Community Enhancement Grants, School Transportation Grants, Community Support Sponsorships, Youth Technology Grants, and now the Economic Development Training Grants.”
