Upcoming Workshop: Learn how DED can serve your community

The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) would like to invite you to learn how two of its assistance programs can benefit your community. The workshops are open to community and nonprofit leaders and will be hosted in Cape Girardeau on March 13, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. and in Trenton on March 20, 2018 at 10:30 a.m.

Each workshop will cover information on DED’s Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) and Youth Opportunity Program (YOP). Program summaries, eligibility, types of projects funded, application cycles and more will be covered. Registration is required. To register, click here.

  • NAP helps nonprofit organizations raise private-sector funds by providing partial state tax credits to businesses that make contributions to approved community improvement projects. For more information, click here.
  • YOP provides tax credits to organizations administering positive youth development or crime prevention projects. For more information, click here.

DED team leads will also be taking short appointments directly following the workshops for those who wish to discuss a specific project. To schedule an appointment, email Kim Baughman at kimberly.baughman@ded.mo.gov.
