Contact:  Samantha Cook
Public Information Officer

           Governor Ernie Fletcher and the Governor’s Office for Local Development (GOLD) announced today a $50,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for Taylor County.  The money will be used to continue the local microenterprise training program.

“Education and training are vital to opening Kentucky to new opportunities,” Governor Fletcher said.  “Investing in this job training program will pay dividends through the creation of new business for the economy of Taylor County.”

             Started in 1998, the local microenterprise training program involves a partnership with Taylor County, the city of Campbellsville, Team Taylor County and Community Ventures, Inc. The program provides training and technical assistance for qualifying individuals in areas such as business feasibility, business planning, marketing and financial management. 

            Community Development Block Grants are federal monies procured through the efforts of Kentucky’s U.S. Congressional leaders.  The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development makes these funds available through GOLD, which administers the CDBG Small Cities program in Kentucky.
