Programs for communities

Whether you're in need of training, prospect handling or financial assistance, our community and economic development team is ready to partner with you.

  • Business Retention/Expansion program
    The loss of a key employer can have a devastating impact on a community. This program shows communities how to develop effective, ongoing plans for retaining their existing business base and encouraging local expansion.
  • Industrial park assistance
    Industrial parks can attract new business and encourage local expansion. We help communities with their feasibility studies by providing assistance in identifying the energy services required in their park.
  • Prospect handling
    We are eager to work with communities to help them meet the needs of their own economic development prospects. Further, when WPS gets direct inquiries from prospects, we will work in partnership with the communities they identify as being able to meet their needs.

A number of additional resources are available to assist in your economic growth efforts.
