Franklin County Microenterprise Program
In its 2015 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy, Franklin County identified a high priority need to increase resources and opportunities for entrepreneurship. To meet this need, Franklin County sought and was awarded a CDBG Microenterprise Program.
The goal of this program is to provide strategic grants to microenterprise businesses that advance projects that will take their business or idea to the next level and directly benefit low to moderate income workers. This program will incentivize business creation and expansion in order to advance regional economic development goals, provide employment, and stimulate economic growth.
