EDC: Grant funding opportunity almost over

EDC: Grant funding opportunity almost over

Some people may have noticed homes and businesses in Hackensack and Walker getting a facelift. Over the past three years 12 businesses and nine homeowners received grant funding for new roofs, furnaces, windows, insulation and other essential repairs. Both commercial and homeowners were eligible for this funding and it is soon coming to a close.

Residents of Walker or Hackensack who did not get a chance to apply, may call the Cass County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) office at 218.947.7522. Their name may be put on a list of interested applicants for a future grant request. There is no guarantee of future funding, but a list of possible applicants will increase chances of receiving another grant.

EDC officials said a healthy housing stock beautifies our cities and helps in business recruitment efforts. The Cass County EDC and Bi-Cap partnered on this project. The Cass County EDC is a community nonprofit corporation.
