Money added to Data Center recruitment
The State Loan and Investment Board has
approved a $5 million grant to help bring a proposed $112 million
data center to Cheyenne.
Cheyenne is one of two finalists in the Rocky Mountain region
for the data center. State officials have declined to identify the
company behind the project, but they say it is a Fortune 100 firm.
The state board approved the $5 million grant on Monday.
Gov. Matt Mead says he's willing to provide another $5 million
in state money to help land the center, bringing the state's total
possible contribution to $10 million. The money would be used to
help pay for infrastructure costs if Cheyenne is chosen.
