Indiana Destination Development Corporation has announced the availability of two grants — the Indiana Destination Development Grant and IN Indiana Placemaking Activation Grant.
The placemaking activation grant offers communities the opportunity to create IN Indiana artwork and signage in highly visible locations throughout the state. (The City of Portland, Arts Place and Portland Main Street Connect partnered to receive a grant this year that funded the new mural on the north side of Community Resource Center.) The development grant offers funding for “high-impact projects that raise Indiana's capacity for attracting visitors, providing tourism experiences and enhance residential quality of life.”
“Indiana is a diverse state that’s full of character, and we plan to continue showcasing that through these placemaking and development projects,” said Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch.
The deadline to apply for the grants is set for Feb. 2. For more information about the programs, go to visitindiana.com.
