The Mid-Minnesota Development Commission (MMDC) would like Kandiyohi, McLeod, Meeker, and Renville County businesses, large and small, to know that we are available to assist you during this time of financial hardship. We are learning of new economic aid opportunities almost every day and, while we are not yet experts in all local, state, and federal assistance programs, we are willing to help you identify, connect with, and obtain economic assistance for your business. We are happy to:

  • Help you understand how the “stay at home” order pertains to your business
  • Help you find local, state, and/or federal resources that might help your business and/or your employees during this difficult time
  • Assist with and/or review applications for local, state, and/or federal aid.

To connect with us, contact MMDC Executive Director Eric Day at eric.day@mmrdc.org.
