Directions can be found at: Jobs are the most important issue facing our area, and this event will highlight federal and state resources that can assist green business and green job creation and will encompass a thorough discussion of what resources are available through state and federal government to grow green jobs. We will be welcoming representatives from multiple federal and state agencies, including the U.S. Department of Energy, the Small Business Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture - Rural Development, the N.C. Department of Commerce, the N.C. Green Business Fund, the N.C. Rural Economic Development Center, and more. Attendees will learn what resources these and other agencies have to offer and how they can access those resources. The second half of the summit will provide attendees with the opportunity to ask questions of the agency representatives and to offer suggestions on how Congress and government, in general, can best assist their efforts to grow green sector jobs in southeastern North Carolina. Hope to see you there!
