Economic & Community Development Overview

April 30, 2019: The Economic & Community Development Board will not be considering Grant applications until Q4 2019 for funding in 2020.

The Economic and Community Development Fund supports projects to educate and retrain workers in Lewis and South Thurston counties, with a special emphasis on the needs of community members affected by the eventual closure of the coal-fired electric generating facility in Centralia, Washington. It also provides grants for projects that enhance economic opportunities and community partnerships that benefit and strengthen the region.
