Posted: Fri, October 4, 2013

Do you have a child in your life between the ages of 10-14?  A son, daughter, niece, nephew, grandchild?  Do you wonder how you can help them now be successful in the future?  Do you want to maintain a positive relationship with this young person during the challenging teen years?  

Strengthening Families Program 10-14 is coming to New Hampton this fall, starting Monday, October 28 and is a proven, effective family program that promotes positive communication, family bonding and joint problem solving skills that is recognized across the country for its positive impacts on children, families, and communities. The seven-week FREE program is being offered to any student 5th-8th grade and their families Monday nights, 5:30-8:00PM, from October 28 through December 9.

The program begins with a FREE meal for the family at 5:30PM. FREE childcare is provided for younger siblings during the two-hour program. During the first hour of the program the parents and youth meet separately, but work on similar skills. During the second hour, parents and youth have fun together as they play games and do family projects.

Strengthening Families Program 10-14 is a wonderful program for the families that participate and for the community as a whole.

New Hampton Municipal Light Plant & New Hampton Economic Development Honored with Economic Development Impact Award

Posted: Thu, March 21, 2019
Iowa's rural electric cooperatives and municipal utilities commitment goes far beyond ensuring safe, reliable, affordable, and environmentally responsible energy. They actively create strategic partnerships and provide technical and financial assistance to support business growth and community vitality. Annually, Iowa Area Development Group (IADG) presents Impact Awards to utility partners who were involved in significant economic development initiatives the prior year. During a meeting of the New Hampton Industrial Development Corporation, the New Hampton Municipal Light Plant & New Hampton Economic Development was recognized for their economic development accomplishments and commitment to the community.  

New Hampton Municipal Light Plant & New Hampton Economic Development was presented with an IADG Impact Award for community development. New Hampton Municipal Light Plant & New Hampton Economic Development has supported economic development in the community for many years. A recent example of project participation includes support for the $6 million facility renovation project for the Mercy One - New Hampton Medical Center. This upgrade provides improved health care, better patient privacy, new technology, and a renovated emergency department. All combined, these increased capabilities will provide much needed health care infrastructure for the community, its employers and residents. New Hampton Municipal Light Plant & New Hampton Economic Development secured a $300,000 grant from the USDA Rural Economic Development Loan & Grant program to support this project. New Hampton Municipal Light Plant provided an additional $60,000 in matching funds. Receiving this USDA grant also established a Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) for the New Hampton Municipal Light Plant & Economic Development Office. The loan repayments will go into this newly established RLF and be available to support additional local projects for years to come.
 
"We commend Brian Quirk and the New Hampton Municipal Light Plant as well as Tammy Robinson and the New Hampton Economic Development Office for their steadfast support of business and community development," said IADG President, Rand Fisher. "They are providing important technical and financial assistance that many times is a key component in successfully securing projects that create jobs and support community vitality.
