Six communities have been selected to participate in the Hometown Collaboration Initiative (HCI) pilot program including Corydon, Lebanon, Perry County, Rush County, Pulaski County, and Seymour County. Indiana Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann announced the HCI finalists through YouTube announcement videos on January 12, 2015.
In her announcements, Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann commended each of the communities. “Congratulations to each of the HCI finalist communities. As Indiana’s Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development, I am a strong proponent of growing rural Indiana. That means ensuring our communities provide quality of place where residents and talented people choose to live, work and raise a family. I am confident the HCI program will assist the communities in further developing opportunities for growth and prosperity.”
PCRD would also like to congratulate all six of the communities selected to participate in HCI. We look forward to working with each of you!
