Finding state and federal funding is a complicated process, but we’re experts.
We spend time educating and outfitting elected officials as well as community leaders with the resources they need to move Southwest Indiana forward. Lists of state and federal funding opportunities for community development efforts, job creation and retention, infrastructure, community facilities, a resource library and grant training are all at our fingertips.
The Coalition coordinates our efforts with multiple agencies to provide the best possible outcome for any development project. We work closely with community leaders on project planning and development and assist with every step of the grant process; from writing, development and administration, and compliance.
Currently, the Community Development Division is assisting communities with one of the largest Blight Elimination Plans in the State of Indiana and helping Southwest Indiana communities remove abandoned and dilapidated houses.
