Know My Community, Grow My Community Virtual Workshop - Census & RFP Edition
Thursday, Oct. 7
10 a.m.-12 p.m.

One way communities can grow is by attracting and expanding businesses and residents. However, responding to a Request for Proposals (RFPs) from potential businesses or critical infrastructure grants can be a daunting task. Nevertheless, it is still a critical component in attracting businesses, funding and the people you want in your location. 
Learn how to find the data you need to put your community in the best light at this free, two-hour interactive workshop with direct applications for business recruitment and developments in your community. 
If you know nothing about RFPs and want to learn about incentive programs, new programs from Commerce, recent laws that affect businesses, the latest tips on Census and redistricting, then this workshop would be helpful to you.
Workshops include a brief overview of the RFP and site selection processes, followed by a hands-on tutorial with Oklahoma Department of Commerce researchers on sources, databases, and strategies to help you fill out RFPs, grants or other data needs for your community.
