Larry Sassano, President of the Economic Development Council of Okaloosa County, Florida, speaks with Dr. Rick Harper, Executive Director of the Office of Economic Development and Engagement at the University of West Florida. Rick and Larry discuss the Oil Spill Recovery Funds available to businesses located or looking to locate in the 8 disproportionally affected counties in Florida.

This was an initiative of Senator Don Gaetz and his intent was to assist and attract economic development projects in the Northwest Florida region. In the discussion, Rick clarifies where the funds came from, discusses the purpose of the program, the qualifications for the funding, the process and how it benefits economic development. Rick and Larry discuss how aggressive Okaloosa County has been in competing for these awards. Also in the discussion, they touch on the various state incentives offered by Enterprise Florida and local incentives provided by Okaloosa at the county level. Additionally, they talk about the different community functions of the University of West Florida, such as the Office of Economic Development and Engagement, the Haas Center and the Small Business Development Center.
