Chamber of Commerce Seeking Federal Research Funding for Area
November 24, 2014
The Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce is joining a federal coalition to get federal research funding.
It's a national coalition of more than 60 chambers of commerce from across the country.
The coalition works toward getting federal money for technological and medical research and development in their communities.
"All those types of areas are something we need to be looking for new ways to doing things,” said Tim Hulbert, President of the C.R.C.C. “The way you do that is through research. The University of Virginia. There is about $300 million worth of federal research going on. A lot of it in bio-technology."
The coalition was created in response to cuts to federal research budgets.
