When a call center company wanted to open a facility in the region, the East Central Planning and Development District (ECPDD) assisted with the necessary infrastructure improvements, including water and sewer lines and a new access road. ECPDD coordinated with project partners to secure and administer grants for the Lauderdale County Call Center Project. This $4 million investment in the community has brought over 200 jobs to East Central Mississippi, with plans for future expansions.
