Placeholder Image
The city of McMinnville could soon be seeking the services of a grant writer.Mayor Jimmy Haley has requested aldermen consider designating funds within the 2017-18 fiscal year budget.“For several years, we’ve been talking about a grant writer but we’ve never really moved forward with it,” said Haley. “We’ve used Upper Cumberland Development on several grants, successful grants, and when I was at the Rural Development Conference in Nashville a week or so ago, they discussed the importance of grant writing and how many grants are actually out there. Lots of cities are moving toward doing contracts with grant writers.”The contract would be an agreement between the city and a freelance grant writer.
