‘We’re All In’ grant program

It has been announced that the WEDC is rolling out the ‘We’re All In’ grant program which will take effect on June 15th. We have included the press release as it includes beneficial information regarding the application, eligibility, and process of the program. This program is designed to aid small businesses in getting back on their feet by helping with the cost of business interruption, health and safety advancements, wages and salaries, rent, and other aspects that the COVID-19 has affected. There are a specific set of documents that businesses should have available to upload for the grant application. It will be beneficial to have these documents electronically available as quickly as possible since submissions will be electronic only. In addition, this makes it easier to quickly send in your submission when the site starts accepting the applications. Please share this information as we want to spread it to as many small businesses as possible.

We, Rusk County Development, will provide the required letter verifying that the business was in operation prior to February 2020. Verification requests can be emailed to

6-1-20 We’re All In Dates set



“When I went to college in the cities, I lost all feeling of community. When I graduated, I knew I needed to get back home to a community that I trusted. Ladysmith is a town where you can bring your car in to Flambeau Auto or Jerry’s and not be worried about them taking advantage of your lack of car knowledge. You can go out to eat at Family Restaurant and the owner and all the waitresses know you by name, or walk into Cedar Lodge and have your favorite drink already set out for you. Being able to graduate college, move back to such a welcoming community that I trust, surrounded by family, while having a great job right out of college? That’s a no-brainer!”
