MADISONVILLE, KY (10/31/12) – Rural Development State Director Tom Fern was in Madisonville on October 30, 2012, to announce economic development grant funds for Madisonville Community College (MCC).

The college has been awarded $49,500 to purchase mobile instructional equipment that will allow faculty members to deliver training on-site at the students’ workplace. The training will offer skills that promote entrepreneurship in a wide variety of industry sectors. The funding was made available through USDA’s Rural Business Opportunity Grant (RBOG) program. The primary objective of the RBOG program is to promote sustainable economic development in rural communities with exceptional needs. Grants are awarded on a competitive basis.
 
“This award to Madisonville Community College illustrates the important impact that economic development assistance can have on small towns and rural communities,” Fern said. “USDA is committed to helping small, rural businesses grow and providing the technical support needed to create jobs.”
