Bustos Secures Funding for Western Illinois University Quad-City Campus Manufacturing Lab https://lions103cs.org/bustos-secures-funding-for-western-illinois-university-quad-city-campus-manufacturing-lab/ Thu, 10 Mar 2022 15:09:05 +0000 https://lions103cs.org/bustos-secures-funding-for-western-illinois-university-quad-city-campus-manufacturing-lab/

Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17), a member of the powerful House Appropriations Committee, announced that she has secured $10 million for the Quad Cities Manufacturing Lab and $400,000 for programming focused on Small Business at Western Illinois University (WIU) Quad-Cities. campus as part of a major funding program. The package passed the House and will be voted on by the Senate and signed into law by President Biden in the coming days.

“As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, my top priority is bringing taxpayers’ money home to support our communities,” said MP Bustos. “That’s why I’m thrilled to announce that $10 million in federal funding will come to the Quad Cities Manufacturing Lab and $400,000 will support small business-focused programs at the Quad-Cities campus at Western Illinois. University. Not only will these funds help create new small businesses in the area, but they will help existing ones develop succession plans to extend their longevity in the community.

Cheri Bustos

“We are very grateful to Rep. Bustos for her support. She understands the fundamental importance of small business to Illinois’ Main Street economy. With an investment centered on the WIU-QC campus, our project offers three strategies to help business owners throughout the business lifecycle. First, we plan to expand our reach to help start new businesses, especially in underserved communities in the Quad Cities and Northwestern Illinois. Second, we plan to help existing businesses grow by helping them through the procurement process. Third, we’ll help business owners looking for an exit strategy develop viable succession plans. The broader vision is to position WIU as a catalyst for a more robust and sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystem for the Quad Cities, as well as West Central and Northwestern Illinois,” said Christopher Merrett, director of the Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs at Western Illinois University. .

Congresswoman Bustos submitted the application to expand WIU’s ability to drive innovation and small business success. The funding will support a program to promote new business start-ups through entrepreneurship training, help existing small businesses explore new markets, and encourage early-stage small businesses to create business succession plans .

According to the most recent Illinois Small Business Profile released by the Small Business Administration, there are approximately 1.2 million small businesses in Illinois. Small businesses employ 2.1 million people and make up 45% of Illinois’ private sector workforce.

This proposal builds on WIU’s current success in reaching minority and women’s entrepreneurs in the Quad Cities and Northwestern Illinois and would offer technical assistance to help small businesses, including owned businesses. to minorities and women. Although studies show that a majority of small businesses do not maintain succession plans, this initiative would launch a regional succession planning initiative that would include an online succession planning toolkit, a marketing strategy to make sure people know about the resource and will be offering a series of business succession planning workshops in the Quad Cities and in northwest and central Illinois.

In addition to direct funding for the project, Congresswoman Bustos also helped garner support for a number of priorities for the Quad-Cities community, including:

  • $15 million for large-scale additive manufacturing prototyping: The funding will support programs at the Rock Island Arsenal Center for Excellence for Additive and Advanced Manufacturing that prototype components such as the next-generation combat vehicle’s seamless hulls. The ability to craft combat vehicles without joints will increase both manufacturing efficiency and a vehicle’s ability to survive.
  • $25 million for Soft Recoil Artillery Systems: This funding will support the work of the Rock Island-based Mandus Group, which is testing soft recoil technology for use on U.S. Army Humvees.
  • $15 Million in Expeditionary Additive Construction: This funding supports a critical initiative at the Rock Island Arsenal Center of Excellence.
  • $10 million for Quad-Cities Manufacturing Lab: This funding will support the lab’s development of personal protective equipment that will provide military members with larger, lighter protection.
  • $5 million for environmentally friendly coatings for military equipment: This funding will support the development of coatings that prevent corrosion of military equipment and improve longevity. Much of this work and testing takes place at the Rock Island Arsenal.
  • A provision to improve future missions on locks and dams in the Rock Island District of the US Army Corps of Engineers: Today’s package includes language that would encourage better communication and a thorough reporting process on the long-term viability of the Chicago and Rock Island districts to ensure projects are properly awarded.
  • Flood protection: The bill includes $275 million for the Flood Hazard Mapping and Hazard Analysis program, a tool communities use to learn which areas have the highest flood risk .
  • $8 million in funding to help local governments create plans to address social factors that affect long-term health: This funding would address factors such as shortages of health care providers, food deserts, unsafe and precarious housing and other environmental factors specific to the needs of the local community. This provision is in line with that of the deputy Bustos Social Determinants Accelerator Act.
  • $25 million in funding for a pilot program in the National Health Service Corps: This provision will extend loan repayment for five years and provide $200,000 to providers working in a rural area facing a shortage of health professionals. This aligns with MP Bustos Rural America Health Corps Act to help recruit and retain healthcare professionals to address labor shortages and meet the needs of small towns in Northwest and Central Illinois.
  • Support for small business succession planning to encourage the Small Business Administration to help develop guidance, training, best practices, workshops and other resources: This will help small business owners and entrepreneurs to establish and execute a business succession plan. This is in line with the opinion of MP Bustos Small Business Succession Planning Act.
  • A provision to encourage all federal agencies to purchase flags containing 100% materials made in the United States: This is in line with Congresswoman Bustos’ decision. American Flag Act.
  • A provision to encourage the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to review pending applications for advanced biofuels under the Renewable Fuels Standard.
  • Support for Enhanced Veteran Telehealth Services: This support is essential to meet the health care needs of our Veterans during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • A provision encouraging the Veterans Healthcare Administration’s (VHA) Veterans Transportation Program (VTP) to adopt on-demand shared transportation service: This will increase transportation access, coverage, and efficiency for veterans in rural communities.
  • $3.5 million for a military online property management pilot program: to create a tool similar to popular online real estate websites, to market existing, unused property to the military, other federal agencies or private partners. This is an initiative that MP Bustos helped bring about.
  • $10 million for new low-carbon fuels and engine technologies: This funding will support research and development of new engine architectures that incorporate low-carbon fuels like ethanol and biodiesel, including the performance of these engines on higher blends of renewable fuels – which is critical to family farmers in northwest and central Illinois.
  • Help expedite Bureau of Prisons (BOP) retention bonuses: This will help facilities where 10% or more of the total available positions are vacant, to combat understaffing issues at sites like Thomson Prison .
  • Help expedite Direct Hiring Authority approval for BOP locations: This will help locations where 10% or more of the total number of available positions are vacant, to address understaffing issues at sites like Thomson prison.

National Heritage Partnership. “These partnerships enhance the Lake Champlain ecosystem for future generations and preserve and interpret our heritage for residents and visitors.

Howe added, “Local grants leverage federal dollars with local dollars, staff or volunteer time, and landowner contributions. Almost all projects that receive funding from the LCBP recruit volunteers to participate in the project or help interpret the project to the public. Homeowners can receive technical assistance from watershed groups to assess their property for stormwater issues, stewards identify aquatic invasive species and remove them from boats and trailers, and volunteers help visitors discover the rich history of the region. The LCBP relies annually on teams of experts from New York, Quebec and Vermont to review and rank our grant applications, making recommendations to our Executive and Steering Committee members.

The 136 grants awarded this year will support projects in many grant categories. Examples of LCBP 2022 grant projects include:

• Small Education & Outreach – for example, the Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center will expand its Diversity Access Initiative which aims to alleviate historical, social and economic barriers to recreation and education on the lake experienced by identified children as Black, Native, Color (BIPOC) by offering up to four weeks of free youth camp to approximately 50 campers. $10,000.

• Organizational support – p. eg, the Ausable River Association will increase its organizational capacity to improve research on the Ausable River. $4,000

• Clean Water – Planning – p. e.g., the Lake Champlain and Lake George Regional Planning Board will update information and projects in the 2018 Lake Champlain Non-point Source Pollution Subwatershed Assessment and Management Plan to capture new new demographic and monitoring data and add new point source load reduction projects and information. $47,785

• Clean water – Small implementation – p. eg, the Lake St. Catherine Association will continue its Lake Wise stewardship program and partner with students and staff at Castleton University. $24,970

• Clean Water – implemented on a large scale – for example, the City of South Burlington will install a gravel wetland to treat runoff from five acres of impermeable area before it reaches Potash Brook, a watercourse. water whose water quality is degraded. $125,000

• Healthy Ecosystems – Conservation of native habitats and species – for example, the Franklin County Natural Resources Conservation District will conduct a multi-year habitat monitoring study at the Johnson’s Mill Dam Removal Site in Bakersfield, VT . $25,000

• Healthy ecosystems – Prevention and management of the spread of aquatic invasive species – for example, the OBVBM will acquire a boat washing and decontamination unit for Lake Selby in the Missisquoi Basin in Quebec. $15,000

• Technical grants – for example, Stone Environmental, Inc. will develop a comprehensive binational phosphorus mass balance model for Missisquoi Bay. $300,000

• Cultural Heritage – for example, the Lake George Historical Association Museum, through a Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership Collections Grant, will enhance, expand and modernize its “Called by the Water” exhibit with information and an updated interpretation on water quality that marks the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act. $7,500

• Additional grants – for example, Project 986 Consulting will support the Lake Champlain Basin program’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion programming and planning process. $15,000

These grants support projects that advance the goals of the Lake Champlain Opportunities for Action Long-Term Management Plan (plan.lcbp.org). These grants use funds provided to the NEIWPCC on behalf of the Lake Champlain Basin Program by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, and the National Park Service.

He Ara Kotahi Hei Ara Kōrero will be a digital storytelling experience along the Manawatū River (file photo).

A project that will give people the opportunity to engage in digital stories is one of many arts and culture projects in Manawatū to receive government funding.

Rangitāne and the Central Economic Development Agency (CEDA) received funding of $700,000 for their project, He Ara Kotahi Hei Ara Kōrero.

Rangitāne Tourism Task Force chair Chris Whaiapu said the project was to create a digital resource for people wanting to learn more about local stories.

Digital technology would be used to tell stories about different sites along the Manawatū River.

Whaiapu said it was still in the planning stage, so what stories would be told had yet to be decided.

When it is operational, hopefully in November, people could stop at various points along the river, scan a QR code and see stories.

“Once we have developed the list of sites whose stories we want to be told, we will develop the QR code, and we will have the platform to be able to take over the hosting of the information.

“We are also looking to digitize or animate one of our tūpuna who named the Manawatū, Haunui-a-Nanaia, so we are looking to digitize it and have it tell these stories through QR coding and the digital platform. ”

He said he hoped it would be used by many people, whether tourists, locals or school groups.

The name, He Ara Kotahi Hei Ara Kōrero, represented the shared path along the Manawatū River and made this path rich in stories.

The project, He Ara Kotahi Hei Ara Kōrero, takes its name in part from the shared trail along the Manawatū River, He Ara Kotahi (file photo).

The funding came from Te Urungi: Innovating Aotearoa, which is part of the government’s Cultural Innovation Fund and the Covid-19 Recovery Programme.

Arts, Culture and Heritage Minister Carmel Sepuloni said the fund has a particular focus on improving the sustainability of arts and culture in our communities.

“This program has proven that a good idea can come from anywhere in the country.

“I am impressed by the bold and courageous ideas of the over 100 projects that have been funded so far, all of which aim to support creatives, their ideas and their long-term work potential.

“Arts and culture are critically important to our economy. Our $374 million Covid-19 recovery plan for the sector and the recently announced $120 million support in response to Omicron underscores the social, economic and cultural value of the sector.

Nonprofit Goal: WebFX and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation https://lions103cs.org/nonprofit-goal-webfx-and-the-chesapeake-bay-foundation/ Mon, 28 Feb 2022 13:12:07 +0000 https://lions103cs.org/nonprofit-goal-webfx-and-the-chesapeake-bay-foundation/

WEBFX

Why do you think it is important for your business to support nonprofit organizations in our region?

As a company, we lead by example, work with integrity and aspire to leave a better world, both inside and outside our neighborhood. In our hometown of Harrisburg, we host regular get-togethers, support local businesses and more. But it’s not just our business. Our team members dedicate time outside of work to the area, volunteer at local non-profit organizations and more. By supporting nonprofit organizations in our area, our company and our team can create additional impact to improve the community in which we love to live, work and play. We are passionate about doing what we can to help make the area we love a better place for everyone. Nonprofits are making a huge difference to everyone’s quality of life, and they’re doing so much creative, high-impact effort in Central PA. The region would not be what it is without their efforts.

Why do you support this particular nonprofit and what does your business do to benefit the organization?

At WebFX, we are goal driven – we are always looking to make a difference for our team and in our local community, while delivering results and creating impact for our clients and their businesses. The Susquehanna River sits right outside the front door of our Harrisburg office and provides us with a fantastic creative backdrop and outlet for weekend recreation. As this river system is the largest feeder to the Chesapeake Bay, we feel collectively responsible for protecting and maintaining the waterways we so often use. We love how the Chesapeake Bay Foundation takes a holistic approach to cleaning up the bay and works to address the fundamental issues with the 50 rivers and streams that flow into the bay. WebFX donates to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Keystone 10 Million Tree Project to plant a tree each time we reach a client goal. To date, we have donated over 2,500 trees along the Capital Region and surrounding greenbelt and have been able to help plant the trees each year. A single deciduous tree can intercept 500 to 750 gallons of water per year, reducing runoff and pollution in the Chesapeake Bay.

CHESAPEAKE BAY FOUNDATION

Describe your organization and the importance of corporate support in advancing your mission.

The Keystone 10 Million Tree Partnership is a collaborative effort of more than 215 national, regional, state and local agencies, conservation organizations, outdoor enthusiasts, businesses and citizens committed to improving communities, the economy and ecology of Pennsylvania by planting 10 million trees in priority areas across the Commonwealth by the end of 2025. Maintaining the partnership by providing extensive resources and assistance is key to its success at long term until 2025. This is why the partnership continues to provide free trees to all Commonwealth partners based on a regional priority request system. . Tree shelters and stakes are also available in critical regions at no cost as funding is available. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is coordinating the partnership to support Pennsylvania’s efforts to reduce pollution in local rivers and streams and meet its commitment to the regional Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint. Today, more than 27,000 miles of Pennsylvania rivers and streams are damaged by pollution. The Clean Water Blueprint calls for the planting of 96,000 acres of forested buffers across the state from 2015 to 2025. Meeting this massive restoration challenge will take many hands – landowners ready to plant trees, volunteers ready to help , conservation partners that connect them, and funds to make anything possible.

For 2022, what is your greatest need?

The partnership aims to enlist, energize and mobilize volunteer groups and individuals to partner with larger partners and help plant in their local communities. The partnership is planting nearly 500,000 trees by 2022. The successful planting and survival of 10 million trees is critical to the overall success of the program and requires funding for tree protection and stewardship. With this investment, Pennsylvania’s economy will be boosted and the partnership strengthened to grow and plant trees to reach the goal of 10 million trees by 2025. Partnership Accelerates Buffer Zones woodlands along watercourses, particularly along agricultural lands and urban and suburban settings. . We are seeking funding to reach 19,000 landowners who would be willing to restore riparian buffers on their property by the end of 2025. This mix of target areas for trees will have a direct link to human health, strong communities , vibrant farms and a legacy of drinking water for all. With your support, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Keystone 10 Million Trees Partnership will help save the bay. Our goal is to reduce local pollution and create dramatically cleaner waters in Pennsylvania’s rivers and streams and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay. Thanks to WebFX and all of our Chesapeake Bay Foundation members in the Harrisburg area!

Alpena City Council will determine which projects will become reality this fiscal year | News, Sports, Jobs https://lions103cs.org/alpena-city-council-will-determine-which-projects-will-become-reality-this-fiscal-year-news-sports-jobs/ Thu, 24 Feb 2022 06:34:53 +0000 https://lions103cs.org/alpena-city-council-will-determine-which-projects-will-become-reality-this-fiscal-year-news-sports-jobs/

News Photo by Steve Schulwitz Alpena Fire Department Lt. Chris Morrison, left, and firefighter Abby Smith practice at the Public Safety Building while on duty Wednesday. The city has new fitness equipment for staff in its capital improvement plan. Alpena City Council will decide whether or not to include the money for equipment when developing the 2022-23 budget.


ALPENA – The municipal government of Alpena has more than $8 million in street, park, water, sewer and emergency services projects listed in its capital improvement plan for the year 2022 -23.

However, not all will become realities.

The city recently updated its six-year plan that prioritizes needed projects and purchases and allows Alpena City Council to fit as many as possible into its annual budget. However, many will be put on the back burner as the board will have to choose which ones it can afford.

The city budget runs from July 1 to June 30.

Many projects depend on the city receiving grants to help cover costs, especially high-priced ones. Some projects are paid for from the general fund and others from other funds, such as the city water and sewer fund and the street fund.

“We’ve got all the proposed projects for 2022-23 on budget and are really starting to scale back to match the funding we have,” said Alpena City Manager Rachel Smolinski. “We still hope to use grants to help pay for projects. This is why it is important to have projects in the CIP and the master plan, because very often we would not be eligible for certain subsidies if we had not included them in our local long-term plans.

As is the norm, many of the proposed projects involve improving infrastructure such as streets and the city’s water and sewer system.

A project proposed for this year would benefit residents who live on or near 4th Avenue between Lewis Street and Bedford Street, where water and sewer improvements are planned, if council approves the projects. The money for these projects would not come from the city’s general fund, but from the water and sewer fund.

Another major street project calls for construction on Ripley Boulevard, from Grant Street to Washington Avenue. The $500,000 for that work would come from the Main Streets Fund this year, and the plan includes a request for the same amount in the 2026-27 budget year.

The plan includes many other proposed projects for local parks. The city could allocate $500,000 over the next two budget years to match a grant it received to build a clubhouse and restrooms near Bayview Park.

Significant investments in the port, marina and parks are spread over the next six years, along with the necessary purchases of police and fire vehicles.

Smolinksi said the capital improvement plan is an important tool that helps the city track spending and future needs. She said it allows the board to plan for major expenses and meet needs that need to be addressed quickly.

The plan is updated annually and projects can be moved from year to year depending on needs and funding. This year, Smolinksi said, the city has listed some projects that are projected beyond six years to monitor longer-term needs and concerns.

These projects include a proposed river center at Duck Park and a mixed-use building at the marina.

Overall, the plan includes approximately $70.3 million in proposed projects through the end of 2028.

Knowing that the likelihood of all projects being completed by then is unlikely, Smolinksi said the city may choose to use the nearly $1 million it received from the American Rescue Plan Act from the federal government, which provided local governments with coronavirus-related stimulus funding to help with some expenses.

Smolinski said department heads had discussed how best to spend the money and she intended to make a recommendation to the board in March or April.

“Yes, these funds could be used for certain projects in the city,” she said.
