The Department’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) awarded a $1.4 million grant to the George County Board of Supervisors, Lucedale, Miss. to make critical infrastructure improvements to the George County Industrial Park. The improved industrial site will accommodate local business needs, including the development of a wood pellet plant that will produce over 1.4 million metric tons of pellets annually, primarily for export to the United Kingdom and Europe. The project is expected to create 90 jobs.

“This grant is crucial for Enviva and George County,” said Governor Bryant. “EDA’s investment in this project will further strengthen Mississippi’s status as a leader in economic development.”
