Economic Development Assistance Programs


One of the main priorities of the Mapleton EDA is to foster an environment where our existing businesses do well while spurring new economic growth within the community. The links provided in this section are helpful tools in how to start a new business or to expand an existing business.   


At times the process of expanding/starting up a business may seem overwhelming.  To help with this challenging endeavor, the Mapleton EDA would be happy to step up a confidential consultation regarding your business idea or expansion.  For more information, or to set up a consultation, contact City Administrator Patty Woodruff  at 507-524-3492 or by email at mptn@hickorytech.net.
