Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:

This grant provides funding to the Town of Aurora to construct public water, sewer and road infrastructure for the 51-acre Aurora Industrial Park (AIP). The Town of Aurora will purchase the AIP site with a $450,000 loan from Beaufort County secured by pre-sales to businesses that will locate in the AIP. Many of the AIP businesses will be associated with the mining of phosphate in the area and are contractors currently working at the nearby Nutrien mine, operating on small parcels with limited resources. When fully built out, the AIP will create sites for offices, laydown yards, fabrication and repair facilities for businesses and contractors. Contractors have also expressed the possibility of expanding their operations with the ability to establish satellite offices in the proposed park. This project anticipates the relocation of 48 full-time jobs and the creation of at least 19 new jobs. Golden LEAF funds will be used for infrastructure-related costs.
