Online tool allows you to track WEDC grants


MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is taking steps to become more transparent.

One way is a new interactive map that allows anyone to see where WEDC is investing. You can track grants and funding, the companies which received them and the amount of jobs they're expected to create. Click here for the map.

"It's going to be a pretty powerful tool, something that the state has never had, mainly from the standpoint of being able to visually see where all the investments have taken place since WEDC was formed," says Tom Thieding, WEDC communications manager. 

The map is a collaboration between WEDC, the State Cartographer's Office, and students from UW-Madison and UW-Whitewater.
