A primary focus of the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs is to assist Indiana’s rural residents in improving their quality of life as they promote successful and sustainable communities. Community Economic Development Fund (CEDF) grants are funded with federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) dollars from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Most economic development activities are undertaken for the purpose of job creation or retention. Most job creation or retention activities are classified as eligible under one of several economic development-oriented categories.
