The past few months have underscored how important it is for people and communities to have a strong network of support and access to resources that will help build a brighter future for all. As a local business, we are here to support you – our members – and the community we all share.

While we’ve strived to give back in additional ways throughout this period of unprecedented need, our ongoing investments in the local community are the foundation of the brighter future we envision. From education grants and workforce development initiatives to innovative energy solutions and new technologies, everything we do is aimed at strengthening our community.

Chief among JOEMC’s contributions are economic development activities. These lead to new opportunities for our members, pave the way for the success of local businesses, and give our communities the resources they need to grow and thrive.

By working with local city and county officials to provide zero-interest loans through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Economic Development Loan and Grant (REDLG) program, Jones-Onslow is helping create and retain jobs, promote economic development and enhance community facilities and public services like police protection and fire and rescue. We are also working to make our service area attractive to businesses seeking to locate here or expand their operations.

Because we’re owned by and based in this community, we know firsthand what our community has to offer, and we’re actively involved in helping other people and businesses recognize the tremendous potential of this area. We’re committed to making meaningful investments that will support economic vitality and the long-term success of our members.
