Business Ready Community Grant & Loan Program
The Business Ready Communities program can provide financing for
publicly owned infrastructure that promotes economic development
within Wyoming communities. Projects may include direct job creating
projects where a business has committed to locate or expand in
a community, and community readiness projects where no specific
company has committed to expand or locate in a community.

than other type of bond financing.
