SLIB funds economic development projects

The State Loan and Investment Board or SLIB approved over eight million dollars in Business Ready grants.  

Among the highlights, SLIB approved funding for a major road project in Sweetwater County to benefit Uranium production and the board also agreed to a managed data center cost reduction grant for Green House Data in Cheyenne. 

It will give the company the opportunity to expand by providing it a two-point-25 million dollar utility break.  Shawn Mills of Green House Data says the action will help his company and the state’s economy.   

Wyoming Business Council C-E-O Bob Jensen says both projects will help Wyoming diversify its economy.
