Torrington, WY – The Go Goshen Board of Directors are excited to unveil the NEW AND IMPROVED Progress Program. The Progress Program is a staple of Go Goshen, it utilizes the ¼ penny for economic development funding and reinvests it in Goshen County local businesses, non-profit organizations and municipal infrastructure projects.

The funding matrix of the program was expanded due to the increase in sales tax that Goshen County has seen. With inflation and the increased cost of goods and services, this program will have a larger impact than prior awards. The new matrix is shown below:

The goal of the increased funding opportunity is to continue incentivizing economic development projects around the county. To date, Go Goshen has awarded over $1.5M to Goshen County businesses, non-profits and municipal infrastructure projects, which has leveraged over $20M in investment in those projects.

Go Goshen – which includes Economic Development, the Goshen County Chamber of Commerce, Main Street, and Tourism – is a non-profit organization that prioritizes the retention and expansion of local businesses. Since 1987, the organization has encouraged business growth, created jobs, and built on local community assets in five Wyoming municipalities: Fort Laramie, LaGrange, Lingle, Torrington, and Yoder.
