Three West Tennessee cities receive $2.9M from DRA

The Main Street Dyersburg Farmers Market

Three Tennessee municipalities will benefit from $2.9 million in investments through the Delta Regional Authority’s (DRA) States’ Economic Development Assistance Program (SEDAP). 

The three new investment projects will improve basic public infrastructure and support business development and job training in communities across Western Tennessee. These projects are projected to create or retain nearly 200 jobs and train over 700 individuals. Funding comes in part from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.  

Dyersburg has been awarded $216,000 to renovate the Main Street Dyersburg Farmers Market to better serve a local food desert and provide training to food-related entrepreneurs in the area. 

The city of Parsons received $560,000 for the removal and replacement of a 27,000-square-foot roof at a commercial facility. The Monogram Refrigeration Facility Expansion project in Selmer also received more than $2.2 million to add 140,00 square feet to the existing facility.
