Tech Park Grant Featured on U.S Department of Commerce Website

The $5.25 million grant awarded earlier this week by the U.S. Economic Development Administration to the West Virginia Regional Technology Park (former Dow Tech Park) is garnering national attention. A blog post about the award is currently featured on the home page of the U.S Department of Commerce’s website. The post, written by John Fernandez, the U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development, discusses the impact the grant will have on the Tech Park. The grant will be used to fund a renovation of a major building (770) on the park’s South Charleston campus. It was the largest U.S. Economic Development Administration grant awarded this year to date. The project is expected to create an initial 96 jobs, with an additional 9,000 jobs added over the long term.
