submitted by New Markets Tax Credit Coalition on 06/14/17 1

Rough and Ready is a 92 -year-old family owned business, and when it shuttered its small diameter mill, 85 employees lost their jobs in a county that already carried one of the highest unemployment rates and poverty levels in Oregon. In 2014, Ecotrust and partners helped to reopen the mill with creative financing from the New Markets Tax Credit Program
