At Thrive, our goal is to support our local communities in West Central Indiana in whatever they need. We want to see your community grow through new infrastructure, sidewalk renovations, revitalizing historic downtowns, new businesses, housing, and more. Thrive has led hundreds of projects over the years throughout West Central Indiana. All you have to do is reach out to us with your newest creative ideas and projects!
Thrive serves our region as the Economic Development District (EDD) and is accredited by the the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA). Thrive has served our region in this capacity since 1968 and creates and leads our comprehensive economic development strategy (CEDS) for our region.
When your community approaches Thrive, our dedicated team will help you clarify your goals and strategize the best ways to reach them. We believe that planning is an essential step in community and economic development, and we prioritize it in our work. Once we have finished working with you to create a plan, Thrive will begin to reach out to state and federal organizations to apply for grants and seek funding partners for your projects! Our professionally trained grant writers and planners will draft, write, and edit your grant applications, giving you the best possible chance of receiving funding and support for your community!
Even after Thrive has connected you with resources and funding, our team will regularly check in and support your community throughout the development process. We believe that every community deserves to grow and experience revitalization, and we’re excited to stand with you every step of the way!
