[ARCHIVED] Councilman Faucette elected vice-chair of NC Rural Infrastructure Authority


Burlington City Councilman Celo Faucette has been elected to serve as vice-chair of the NC Rural Infrastructure Authority. Mr. Faucette was appointed to service on the Authority in December, 2013 by Governor Pat McCrory.

The authority reviews and authorizes grants and loans for rural areas within the state. Members formulate policies for making these loans and grants and create ways for the Rural Economic Development Division of the North Carolina Department of Commerce to effectively aid local governments in meeting preliminary project planning costs, as well providing insight into the application and review process.

The Authority meets every eight weeks at the Department of Commerce in Raleigh, NC.
