  • Bend, OR (1888PressRelease) December 30, 2010 - The recent $9M award from North Carolina‟s Department of Health and Human Services requires GL Solutions to make significant investments in order to increase stafff and relocate prior to meeting contract obligations.

EDCO is a nonprofit organization dedicated to diversifying the economy in Central Oregon by attracting new investment and jobs. Fund grantees must create a minimum of five new primary, permanent family wage jobs and invest at least $5 of new, taxable investments for each $1 allocated.
