Grant for Deer Park’s Development

On October 24th, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers announced that new grant money was to be invested into the Deer Park community.

The $4.7 million grant from the Washington Department of Commerce’s Economic Division is intended to develop and improve the Deer Park Business and Industrial Park. According to the press release from the U.S. Economic Development Administration, U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development Dr. John Fleming stated, “The project will help fortify the Deer Park Business and Industrial Park by making critical infrastructure improvements along Cedar Road. Specifically, the project will accommodate the needs of the existing businesses and encourage future development by constructing an all-season roadway and making needed sewer, water, lighting, and sidewalk improvements.”

In her own press release, McMorris Rodgers stated, “I’m proud of the team in the Deer Park community who have been working hard to expand the opportunities for people in northern Spokane County. This grant for local infrastructure improvements is critical to continuing their work to grow our economy and create jobs right here in Eastern Washington. Thank you to the Trump administration, Secretary Ross, and the Economic Development Administration for recognizing the work being done on the ground and investing in our community.” 

The grant is expected to be matched with $1.2 million in local investment funds, and should create 47 new jobs, retain 40 existing jobs, and generate almost $6 million in private investment.  For more information on the grant, view the EDA Press Release at https://www.eda.gov/news/press-releases/2019/10/24/deer-park-wa.htm.
