GROWTH donated $5,000 to Georgetown, CO to support quality of life enhancements through the Georgetown Business Promotion Commission. Rock Island Economic Growth Corporation d/b/a Economic Growth Corporation (GROWTH) pledged $5,000 to Georgetown, CO as part of the charitable contributions made possible through New Market Tax Credit (NMTC) activity through its Community Development Entity (CDE), Central States Development Partners, Inc.

a check for $5,000 was presented by Carly (The Dog), honorary GROWTH representative to Parker the Snow Dog, honorary Mayor of Georgetown and his security detail, Maverick (The Dog).

“GROWTH is proud to announce its donation of $5,000 to the Town of Georgetown to support the Georgetown Business Promotion Commission’s efforts to promote the community and its businesses. GROWTH has a rich history of helping in ways that promote the viable success of the communities it serves. This donation is one way that we are able to partner and help increase the quality of life for the people (and puppies) of Georgetown,” commented Cindy Berg, CFO for GROWTH, adding “Parker the Snow Dog is the perfect example of what people need to get through hard times- a lot of creativity, humor, commitment, and caring for their community.”

Central States Development Partners is a nationwide CDE formed by its parent non-profit, Economic Growth Corporation (GROWTH) to help meet its overall mission to create jobs, support neighborhoods, and strengthen the community fabric of low-income communities in ways that sustain and promote long-term viable economic success. Additional benefits for communities are being realized where NMTC transactions are occurring, as charitable contributions are being realized through Central States and its NMTC activity. Each time that Central States closes a NMTC transaction, charitable contributions are generated to deploy within low-income areas, creating jobs and opportunities for those living there.

“Our mission is to promote the diversification of our economy and encourage development and activities that will attract visitors during all seasons of the year, added {contact}, representative for Georgetown Business Promotion Commission. This generous donation from GROWTH will help enhance our ability to diversify and grow our economy that enables us to reach more individuals and families across Georgetown.”

As part of its New Market Tax Credit closings, Central States makes a special effort to assist our nation’s underserved populations by requesting Qualified Active Low-Income Businesses make charitable contributions to help underserved children, advance mental health initiatives, visit, support arts, and help other community-minded initiatives that help strengthen communities and neighborhoods by focusing to support and secure sustainable growth that helps increase quality of life.
