Assistant Heritage Area Specialist for Economic Development
Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis. Please feel free to reach out directly to the program contact listed. This project will focus on the Bear River Heritage Area, a program of the Bear River Economic Development District (EDD). Bear River EDD partners with the U.S. Economic Development Administration to provide region-wide strategic economic development planning. The VISTA will have the opportunity to participate in two projects to build economic development capacity of the Heritage Area at a more in-depth level. The VISTA will work with the organization to identify local community and heritage business economic development needs and resources to meet those needs in an effort to attract and preserve higher-paying jobs and other opportunities. The overall goal is to build capacity in rural, economically distressed communities to alleviate poverty, reduce unemployment, and provide a better quality of life. This project is sponsored by the Denver Regional Office (DRO) of the Economic Development Administration (EDA), and will be directly supervised by the Bear River EDD in Logan, Utah. The overall EDA Mission is "to lead the federal economic development agenda by promoting innovation and competitiveness, preparing American regions for growth and success in the worldwide economy."
