In this economic crisis, cities and states around the nation are facing huge budget shortfalls. Economic developers must find ways to protect their budget allocations while trying to help local businesses and maintain existing projects. This session will explore what the federal government is doing to assist cities and states and how economic developers can keep their budgets intact during tough economic times.
