ATTALA COUNTY — Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) and Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) announced a $1.1-million grant awarded to the North Central Mississippi Planning and Development District (NCPDD) to develop a business incubator and job development center in Attala County.

The Economic Development Administration (EDA) grant will be used by the NCPDD to renovate a county-owned industrial building to serve as the Kosciusko-Attala County Technology, Training and Jobs Center. The overall project is expected to cost $1.6 million.

The business incubator is expected to focus on green technology businesses. The renovation itself will also incorporate energy efficiencies.

The NCPDD, headquartered in Winona, covers Attala, Carroll, Grenada, Holmes, Leflore, Montgomery and Yalobusha counties.
