Edinburgh to receive $50K OCRA grant

Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch and the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs today announced seven Indiana communities will receive $318,310 in Planning Grants through the Community Development Block Grant program.

The communities will use the funds to develop plans for the implementation of community and economic development projects.

The Planning Grant program strives to encourage communities to plan for long-term community development with the aid of subject matter experts and community input. The applications being funded this quarter address utilities, public facilities and comprehensive planning efforts.

Comprehensive Planning Grants are designed to aid communities in evaluating assets and identifying opportunities to address current needs in the following areas: land use, government capacity, public services, placemaking, economic development, housing, transportation, agriculture, natural resources, broadband access and historic resources.

Edinburgh was chosen to receive a Comprehensive Planning Grant for $50,000.
