The purpose of this form is to gather information to help inform the Indiana First Regional Development Plan for the READI grant.
Please use the following form to share information on projects or programs. Projects and programs can range from conceptual to fully developed. Information shared will be used to develop a regional strategy for investing funds at the local and regional levels to enhance existing businesses and communities while attracting new businesses and residents to the area. Not every project or proposal submitted will be incorporated into the regional development plan. Projects and programs included in the plan are not guaranteed READI funds. Regions that are selected to receive READI funding will receive up to $50 million to support projects that have the potential to accelerate economic growth and talent attraction.
If the region is selected for READI, a funding committee will be established to prioritize and deploy grant dollars. The Indiana First Regional Development Plan will allow the region to prepare for not only the READI grant but also for future opportunities as we continue to work toward economic and community growth and sustainability.
Please complete and submit this form no later than August 9, 2021.
