County Receives ThreeStar Award
The State of Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development has announced the ThreeStar Competitive Grant Awards for Fiscal Year 2017/18. Thirty-one counties will receive $25,000.00 and Hardeman County is one of them. In the past, each ThreeStar County received $10,000.00 upon application. This is the first year that the grant was raised to $25,000.00 and made competitive. Hardeman County Mayor Sain stated, "I am very proud that we were chosen for the grant. I will utilize the funds to continue the Work Ethics/Workforce Development Classes, Workforce Clean Records program, Health and Welfare programs, updating and maintenance on the county's website. It is vital to our economy to have a trained available workforce ready to go to work. I would like to thank Governor Haslam, Commissioner Rolfe, Senator Gresham, Representative Shaw and Representative Gant for supporting Hardeman County and our efforts to prepare it for competitiveness and economic development."
