  • Share |

The Pennsylvania SBDC will open a new outreach center in downtown Phillipsburg to better serve rural Centre County, thanks to a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

USDA Rural Development State Director Tom Williams presented Penn State SBDC Director Heather Fennessey with a check for $99,990 on July 28.

The SBDC plans to host a series of low-cost classes in the Philipsburg area for small business owners and entrepreneurs to help bring new ideas and jobs to western Centre County. David Jordan, a business consultant with the SBDC, will serve as the primary business consultant in the new Philipsburg office.

“The USDA’s commitment to helping rural small businesses is exemplary,” Fennessey said. “The SBDC will expand our effort to help small businesses in cooperation with other partners, such as the Moshannon Valley Economic Development Partnership, to assist in economic growth in the Philipsburg area.”
