Grants Coordinator working out of VBDS

The Vulcan Business Development Society is excited to announce the addition to our team of Liza Dawber – Grants Coordinator.  Liza was previously working out of the Vulcan County office where she has gained a wealth of experience working with our many hard working local community groups.

As a joint collaboration this position is being funded for a 3 year commitment through Vulcan County, the Town of Vulcan and the Vulcan Business Development Society.  The Town and County Councils along with the VBDS Board are fully supportive of this initiative.

With an average of $650,000 per year of additional funding to the community she is looking to build on these successes with a more accessible office at the VBDS building, this new position with VBDS will be concentrated on grants research and writing assistance.

Marilyn MacArthur, Economic Development officer stated that ‘The VBDS Board and myself are extremely pleased to be able to add the services of a professional grant writer to our portfolio.  Having Liza working out of our offices means that she will be accessible to non-profit organizations and municipalities throughout Vulcan County.   As funding from the Federal and Provincial governments becomes more competitive it is vitally important that we retain professional grant writing services for our community keeping us ahead of the game.’

VBDS assists the regions existing businesses as they grow in their quest for success, while encouraging new businesses to set up and soar with the potential of countless dynamic economic opportunities.

We provide the resources to support business, attract investment, create employment and encourage families, businesses and visitors to realize why there is no better place to be.
