LEDC Receives USDA Grant to Support Entrepreneurs and
Small Businesses in Spencer County
Rockport, Indiana- Lincolnland Economic Development Corporation (LEDC) receives United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) grant to support small businesses and entrepreneurs in Spencer County with a revolving loan fund.
One of LEDC’s main focuses is to create an environment where, entrepreneurs and small business can not only grow but flourish. With small businesses making up over half of Spencer County’s economy the need to support our entrepreneurs is greater than ever.

“Providing resources to Spencer County businesses is of great importance to the LEDC board and staff. Overall, Spencer County has fared well through the pandemic, but is important to LEDC to keep up to date with opportunities in case another disaster is to hit.”- Valerie Schmidt, Executive Director, LEDC
