In 2012, the Town of Madison was awarded a North Carolina Small Town Economic Prosperity Grant (NC STEP) from the North Carolina Rural Center.  The NC STEP program targets economically distressed small Towns of fewer than 7,500 people.  The NC STEP program promotes three primary goals:     

1.  Support Economic Recovery and Revitalization in small towns adversely affected by structural changes in the economy or recent natural disasters;

2.  Apply a comprehensive model of capacity building, technical assistance and grant-making to aid in revitalization efforts through leadership development, job creation, income growth, commercial investment and business activity;

3.  Provide information vital to the development of public policies that support long-term investment in the economic vitality of North Carolina's small towns. 

The Mission of the Town of Madison and its surrounding community over the next two years, led by a group of volunteers of all ages and backgrounds, leveraging the proceeds from a state grant, “NC Rural Center Small Town Economic Prosperity Grant (STEP)” is to promote economic growth through new project initiatives that focus on natural resources, town assets and the appeal our small town atmosphere has to offer.
