The 2018 JARI Annual Report "Producing Results for a Positive Economic Climate" is now available for review on the JARI website . Please click here to view the report. The report documents improved economic activity over the past year, with more jobs created and retained, more financing secured, and less displaced workers served. Seventeen new businesses were started with JARI's assistance while 8,000+ jobs were retained and over 170 new jobs were created. 
The support that is received from our partners, financial contributors, directors and committee members is paramount to the collaboration that ultimately assists our regional employers and our communities.
