Eastern Indiana Transforms!
Creating Opportunities | Transforming Communities
Eastern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (EIRPC) was selected by the USDA’s Office of Rural Development to participate in the Stronger Economies Together planning process which culminated in 2017 in receiving a High-Quality Plan designation. The key takeaway continues to be the absolute necessity for Eastern Indiana to “Attract, Retain, and Develop Talent for the regional workforce.”
Whether they focus on building quality of place by improving connectivity, creating needed housing opportunities, directly developing a person’s ability to join the workforce, or improving the health and wellness of people who may then remain in or rejoin the workforce, the mission remains the same. Growth is only possible in Eastern Indiana if we can first halt the decline in population that has been ongoing for decades.
United we stand. United we grow. United we prosper.
