Over the past year, the Alliance staff along with officials from Ada and Forest CIC, participated in AEP Ohio’s 2015 Community Economic Development Academy (CEDA), which was a multi-phase program that included attending site selection workshops, preparing new marketing strategies and hosting national site selectors for tours of the county’s top industrial sites.
These funds are being shared from the grant money recently received by the Alliance for participating in the yearlong program. The original grant money was provided by AEP Ohio.
