PHILIPPI, W.Va. (AP) - Alderson Broaddus University will receive a $773,000 grant to spur rural entrepreneurship.

The grant is being awarded by the U.S. Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration.

The university will use the money to create a business incubator facility. Officials estimate that the project will create 180 jobs and generate more than $14 million in private investment over the next nine years.

EDA’s investment will help fund the construction of a business incubator facility on the first floor of the former Broaddus Hospital on the campus of Alderson Broaddus University. The new Center for Rural Entrepreneurship will serve the seven rural counties of Barbour, Braxton, Randolph, Upshur, Lewis, Gilmer and Tucker.
