ST. PAUL, MN – Jackson is one of three cities receiving grants from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED). Just over $2.35 million in grants were awarded for infrastructure projects in the Greater Minnesota area.

Jackson was awarded $49,328 for assistance with infrastructure improvements that will supply enough water and water pressure for future expansion of the current industrial park. The future plan is that the new businesses will bring at least 10 full-time jobs.

St. Joseph and Faribault were the other cities receiving grants.
