We are putting together an impact report for the USDA SCRI as well as NE Ohio FFEF projects. If you would be willing to share details of the investments made and jobs created (or clients served) for this past year ~August 12 to July 13 it would be greatly appreciated.

Facility $, Equipment $, Clients Served and Direct Jobs (Managers / Staff). In most cases, having TOTAL payroll would be beneficial, however we understand with the number of employees this may be sensitive information, thus jobs would be sufficient.
