Three recent projects funded in whole or part by grants are:
Town of Granger, Wyoming
This project involved the design and construction of a new 500,000 gallon concrete water tank to provide adequate water pressure and fire supply throughout the Town’s distribution system as well as to improve the Town’s ability to attract light industrial development. The primary funding source was a 67%-33% matching grant from the Wyoming Water Development Commission.
City of Driggs, Idaho
This downtown economic development project was funded with Community Development Block Grant funds and leveraged by the City of Driggs and its Urban Renewal Agency. The project’s success was due, in part, to effective communication and participation with agencies, stakeholders, public officials, and the community.
Town of Dubois, Wyoming
The repair or replacement of multiple sanitary sewer mains and the construction of a new lift station was funded by a creative mix of Town of Dubois, Fremont County, Wyoming State Loan and Investment Board, and federal Rural Development sources.
