Government Resources: Federal, State, and Local

Government contacts can provide useful information related to your topic, as well as information on statistics, laws, and other government approaches to an issue.

If you want to start a business or expand a business or promote a business – you need to know something about the population that you will be targeting, the state or county economic environment, and possibly competitive establishments that may already be there.

All of this information is provided by government sources.  Depending on what it is you are trying to find, some of the information you may be looking for will be provided by Federal government resources, such as the U.S. Census, other information will be provided by State agencies, such as Department of Business & Economic Development, and still other information from local agencies within the County or city.

At the Grenada Area Chamber of Commerce, we want to provide you with contacts and information that can help you navigate through the governmental process.  Check out the information under the "Government Resources" tab as we will keep adding information that you will find useful.
