Empowering Rural Communities Project

Empowering Rural Communities provides grant related technical assistance and training to community and small-businesses within northeast Oklahoma with the overall goal of strengthening economic resilience and prosperity in rural communities. The ERC Team will provide clients with successful strategies and tools for researching funding opportunities, developing high quality grant applications, and strategies to manage grant awards in compliance with the Uniform Grant Guidance. While any community is welcome to receive assistance and training, the  target communities from very small rural areas with populations of 2,500 or less and have an average Median Household Income of 60.3% percent of the State's MHI will be a target area for service.
