Carroll County lies on the Ohio River in the northern part of Kentucky. It is the primary industrial area for the region. The county is above the national average for unemployment, but below the national average for per capita income. The community also suffered storm damage from a FEMA declared disaster and is eligible for federal disaster assistance.
In FY 2018, EDA awarded $820,000 in Public Works funds to the City of Carrollton, the County Seat of Carroll County, to improve wastewater lines and build four new pumping stations. The improvements will not only accommodate the existing growth occurring in the area and allow for future growth within the heavy industrial area, but it will also support the expansions of a steel processing plant and steel manufacturer.
The grantee anticipates that 121 new jobs will be created from four beneficiaries and $286 million will be generated in private investment.
