‘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



“I was born and raised in Ladysmith, Wisconsin. After high school, I took off, went to college in the Twin Cities, and traveled to many parts of the world like Tanzania, Ecuador, Mexico, the UK, and several US states. I moved to a small beach town in Florida for awhile after college but somehow found myself thinking about my hometown. After exploring parts of the world, I moved back to Ladysmith and found peace in the comfort and familiarity. It’s awesome being back home and seeing people from different generations come together and work towards making our small town a great place to live. I love going to local businesses and seeing many people I know, the live music opportunities at several of the local establishments, and the plethora of outdoor activities in nature. You can always venture out and explore the world, but there’s just something about that friendly small town vibe that keeps bringing me back home.”
