Group wants projects to boost area economy

A Franklin not-for-profit agency is again looking to give up to $1.3 million to spur economic development projects in the city.

The Franklin Development Corp., which was created by the city and funded with tax money, is asking for a second round of proposals after awarding a total of $1.3 million in grants and loans to four projects in October.

The new funding will be offered as grants only, which do not need to be paid back. Any company or group can apply as long as the proposal ties to the goal of economic development in the city.
