All Signs Point to Success for Arkansas Sign and Banner Shop
Congressman Steve Womack joins Bank of Gravett and FHLB Dallas in presenting Small Business Development Grant
BENTONVILLE, ARKANSAS, March 28, 2016 — When demand was exceeding supply, Joe Conway, owner of Arkansas Sign and Banner, took it as a sign that something had to change. Thanks in part to a loan from Bank of Gravett that was funded by an Economic Development Program (EDP) advance from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas), and an accompanying $19,369 EDPPlus grant, Arkansas Sign and Banner is expanding. The loan assisted in the purchase of a 60-foot boom truck. The grant funds were used for acquiring equipment, hiring an additional staff member to maintain and operate the vehicle, and marketing efforts.
Congressman Steve Womack (AR-District 3), Arkansas State Representative Jim Dotson (District 93), Bentonville Mayor Bob McCaslin, and Kathryn Gough, field representative for U.S. Senator John Boozman, joined representatives from Bank of Gravett and FHLB Dallas today at an event celebrating the grant to the small business.
