In lieu of the usual USDA-Rural Development email, I am forwarding the Choctaw Nation's email of grants, events and opportunities along with the following 2 additional opportunities:
Small Business and Community Development Forum:
OSU Extension, along with CareerTech, are sponsoring a day-long workshop to address small business and community development issues. The morning session will feature Oklahoma-native Becky McCray talking about "Filling the Gaps Downtown" – identifying opportunities to fill empty storefronts in rural communities; the afternoon session will be a data workshop exploring Census' online data tools, including the new Census Business Builder tool, by Dave Shideler. (More details are in the attached flyer.)
When: January 23, 2017, 10 am – 3 pm
Where: Oklahoma Department of CareerTech, 1500 W 7th Ave, Stillwater (Tuttle Seminar Center)
Cost: $25 (includes lunch and materials)
National Endowment for the Humanities:
Creating Humanities, encourages partnerships and collaborations between multiple institutions or organizations in a town, county, region, or area in order to increase humanities infrastructure. NEH hopes that the relationships built and strengthened through Creating Humanities Communities will lead to increases in humanities programing for years to come.
