Frontier Communications, DISH Network, The Weather Channel and CoBank and Dixon Schwabl — the contest’s sponsors — recently announced Imlay City, Imlay and Attica Townships, as a collaborative effort, have advanced into the quarterfinals of this innovative competition, following selection from a pool of about 350 applicants by an independent group of expert judges. The team will now be awarded $65,000 ($35,000 from Frontier, $15,000 from Dixon Schwable and $15,000 from a community match) to develop a comprehensive strategy to accelerate the revival of the local economy and improve quality of life.
The team will continue to meet and discuss the next steps in regards to the contest and the grant money already awarded. The next deadline is November 6 when the team must submit another application and a budget on how the $65,000 was spent.
In January, 8 teams from the 50 will be chosen to continue into the Finalist round. EACH of those 8 teams will receive $100,000 to begin implementation of their Revitalization Plan....
We are in it to win it!
We will keep you posted on our progress and how the community can get involved in the Plan.
