Eighth Veteran Owned Business Grant Goes to Local Business

WCEDC presented our 8th Veteran-Owned Business Grant to the I-ACT team!

I-ACT is a new veteran owned non-profit organization that has the goal of preparing schools and organizations for active shooter scenarios. I-ACT will help train teachers and students to prepare for emergency situations, instruct on proper trauma care (including hemorrhage and penetrative trauma care), and provide canine support services for the detection of narcotics and firearms.

WCEDC provides a $1,000 incentive to any veteran who opens a new business, or any existing veteran-owned business that is expanding. The funds are available to the first ten eligible veterans per year.
