4CED receives funding to help diversify san-juan-county-economy

AZTEC — Four Corners Economic Development has received grant funding for economic diversification efforts. The grant is part of a funding package to assist communities that rely on coal as a base economic industry.

According to a press release, 4CED received $120,000 from the U.S. Economic Development Administration as part of a $988,400 for communities that have been negatively impacted by the decline in coal-fired electrical generation.

The grant 4CED received will be administered by the Northwest New Mexico Council of Governments and will be distributed over three years, according to the press release.

“I am particularly proud that NWNM Council of Governments chose 4CED as the recipient of the economic development grant,” said 4CED CEO Arvin Trujillo in the press release. “The grant funds will further 4CED’s efforts to continue to investigate and pursue all viable projects to help diversify San Juan County’s economy. 4CED has had an excellent long-standing relationship with NWNM Council of Governments, and this only enhances the relationship.”
