Gainesboro Receives Grant

The Town of Gainesboro has received a grant to cover the costs to attend Year 3 of the Retail Academy.

The program is organized by Retail Strategies and is designed to help communities who desire to be more effective in retail recruitment. More than 85 Tennessee communities have participated in Retail Academy over the past four years.

The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development offered a grant opportunity to communities across the State with a population of less than 25,000 to help the selected communities increase revenues from retail. This grant will fully fund qualified cities to complete the Retail Academy program. The goal is to provide cities with the resources and education necessary to enhance their retail landscape and improve their economy as a whole.
