“Some of the most challenging challenges that we face as the startup cities in the region are how to get entrepreneurs to take their business to the next level, and also how to give them opportunities in the form of funding,” said Vicksburg City Council Vice Chairman Joe Lark. “In order for startups to succeed, they need help from the city in order to fund the business so that they can take it to the next level.
Vicksburg is a beautiful city but one that is underdeveloped in comparison to several other cities in east Tennessee. The city lacks a strong, city government infrastructure which has been a big issue for entrepreneurs. For example, the City Council of Vicksburg has not established a city manager or department who directly manages the city’s finances since the 1960’s. Without an updated and modern city government, businesses will often fall short because they will not have the access to the resources necessary to operate as a business. The City Council has also not established a task force with the goal of creating a business tax or a business licensing program to help entrepreneurs.
The Vicksburg entrepreneurial businesses and cities have established a working collaboration to provide resources and opportunities for entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurial companies involved range from new companies to large corporations and non-profit organizations.
Vicksburg Warren Economic Development Partnership Application for a U.S. Department of Labor Grant.
Department of Labor’s Economic Development Partnership Grant Program is designed to expand access to and promote the use of federal funds for economic development projects in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Tennessee. It also supports local participation in the program, both in its design and implementation. This document, a proposed application, is intended as guidance to the U. Department of Labor for applications to the Economic Development Partnership Grant (EDPG) Program. This document may also be useful for other programs and departments with which the U. Government has a responsibility for economic development. This is the policy statement on the grant application. Program Description: Economic Development Partnership Grants (EDPG) are designed to provide funding for economic development projects that are critical to the economic growth in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Tennessee. Projects also provide training programs designed to improve the workforce in these states, promote business practices, and strengthen the competitiveness of the regions involved. The grants provide matching funds from the Federal government and are intended to complement the matching funds the state agency has received from their local economic development agency. This application is the result of a collaborative and comprehensive effort between the Mississippi Economic Development Partnership (MEDP) and the Louisiana Economic Development Partnership (LEDP). Both are regional organizations, operating in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Tennessee, with similar mission, goals, and objectives to promote economic growth through the development of local industries. The Mississippi Economic Development Partnership and Louisiana Economic Development Partnership jointly developed the grant application and applied for the grant funds. They selected a model economic development grant program known as the Economic Development Partnership Grant (EDPG). After careful consideration, the grant application was recommended for approval due to its substantial growth potential, the need to maintain diversity over time in economic and infrastructure investment, the need to enhance partnerships and collaboration between private, public, and nonprofit sectors to achieve high levels of economic growth, and the need for a more efficient use of program resources. The Mississippi Economic Development Partnership and the Louisiana Economic Development Partnership are a good example of regional Economic Development Partnership Grant programs that have experienced rapid growth in size and complexity. With an estimated growth rate of over 300 percent since their inception, it has not been possible to manage the grant program at the level of a single state agency.

MCITy: A project to promote innovation in the United States.
“… The US is a very innovative country. But the number of people with ideas is decreasing. So it is a great thing if you have a few projects like that to turn these ideas into reality. , former member of the US Congress.
MCITy is a project coordinated by the Center for International Trade Policy at the School of Public Affairs at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The purpose of this project is to promote innovation in the United States and encourage the development of high-impact ideas and projects. The specific objectives of MCITy are: (1) to develop innovative and creative ways to solve problems in order to improve the quality of life and promote prosperity around the world; and (2) to help create new ideas that can be used to solve problems and to promote innovation in the US. MCITy is funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
John Conway, who graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1972, was the founding chair of the Republican Party in Kentucky and was elected to both houses of the United States Congress. He has authored numerous books and articles on global issues.
The US is, for a number of reasons, in need of more innovative solutions, and MCITy promotes innovative ideas to help solve problems in the United States. The most notable of the US’s many problems is the lack of access to knowledge for the average American. MCITy aims to fill this knowledge gap.
