Top 10 for the week of Nov 18th

Here's the GFDA Top 10 for the past week, celebrating great things happening to move Great Falls Forward. 
1) We received the first $700,000 from the CDFI Fund to seed our new Enterprise Loan Fund and are now taking applications from developers and non-profit organizations for revitalization projects throughout the Great Falls trade area.
2) Worked on a packet for an energy company considering Great Falls.
3) Worked with the ADF Group, the Job Service and Great Falls College MSU on workforce training plans for ADF's expansion into Great Falls.
4) Met with a local agri-processor to discuss market saturation and growth strategies, starting a market research process to determine what market entry will produce the best return on investment in order to build cash flow for capital investment. Worked with a local entrepreneur on segmentation market analysis to develop a marketing plan with specific measurable goals.
5) Participated in a meeting of the Montana Wind Transmission Working Group to try to speed regional electric transmission projects that will support further Montana energy development.
6) Presented the Great Falls branding strategy to the Great Falls Lodging Association.
7) Testified in support of the City Planning Advisory Board's vote to recommend rezoning for Calumet Montana Refining and General Distributing.

8) One of our newer team members participated in SBA 504 loan training.
9) The Montana Club opened and Panda Express went public with their plans to open a restaurant in Great Falls. We didn't have anything to do with these deals, but sure like the confidence they show in growing the Great Falls market.
10) USAA and named Great Falls as the Best Place for Veterans in Montana, of course!

Enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving!
