USDA Grant Makes Its Way to Gunter

Posted:

GUNTER, TX--The city of Gunter, Texas was awarded a $100,000 USDA grant.

The money will be lent to local businesses at low-interest rate to entice growth. 

"A number of people will drive though Gunter and not stop, and if there was another restaurant or another convenience store or something along that line, people would stop and visit Gunter and get to know the community a little bit better," Mark Taylor said, Gunter Economic Development Corporation vice president.

"It gives rural areas like us an opportunity to try to help either emerging businesses or someone who maybe wants to expand just a little bit," LD Byrd said, Gunter Economic Development Corporation president. 

The Gunter Economic Development Corporation must award the loans within two years.

To apply for a loan, contact the Gunter Economic Development Corporation listed at http://www.guntertexas.com/gunter/resources/ecodev.asp
