Accelerate Rural Indiana

Accelerate Rural Indiana READI Plan

HWC led the development of a regional plan for the Regional Economic Acceleration and Development Initiative (READI) for this new region. Consisting of Decatur, Rush and Shelby Counties and the City of Batesville, the region focused on shared opportunities along the Interstate 74 corridor.  As a result of this effort, the Accelerate Rural Indiana Region was awarded $20 million for a range of projects throughout the three-county region.
