There's been no formal economic development work since the former Fall River Office of Economic Development, now the Bristol County Economic Development Consultants fell out of the good graces of Mayor Jasiel Correia II back in March 2017. BCEDC had been doing economic development for the city since the 1970's which ended for good in July 2017 when Correia pulled its CDA funding. CDA Director Michael Dion put together the plan for the authority to take over economic development for the city, which mirrors the job development program conducted by the former FROED.

Hubbell would use economic development funds to recruit doctors

"If we want to keep these rural Iowans in Iowa, loan forgiveness is the first step," Humble said. The retired Des Moines business executive said it would make sense to shift some economic development funds from tax credits for businesses to recruiting professionals in rural Iowa. That would improve health care in those communities and make them more attractive to employers.
