KINSTON, N.C. — North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue is urging business leaders to look at opportunities for contracts resulting from federal stimulus funds.

Perdue speaks Monday in Kinston at an economic recovery workshop for businesses in eastern North Carolina. It’s the third of six events around the state. She is joined by representatives of state agencies who offer updates on funds and an overview of funding
requirements and contacts.

Perdue spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson said local business and political leaders may learn more about state contracts or participating in work funded by recovery money.

The stimulus includes money for green projects, road building and retrofitting homes and schools to be more energy efficient.
