2022 is here and a local economic development entity is gearing up for a big year.
In 2021, the DeWitt County Development Council named Curt Homann it's new Executive Director and he is readying for big things from the organization in 2022. A continued effort this year will be more grant opportunities for local businesses.
In 2022, the DCDC will also be promoting its revolving loan fund. Homann indicates this is available at a low-interest rate and is often used as gap funding for start-ups or existing businesses.
In his short time serving as the Executive Director of the DCDC, Homann has been making the rounds to City Council, County Board, and other meetings to meet with local leaders. He feels those early interactions have already proven to be productive and looks forward to working with local leaders going forward.
Homann indicates in 2022, watch for business spotlights on social media and is looking forward to bringing back the leaders' breakfasts that were a staple of the organization before COVID.
