Though our day-to-day might look a little different now, it isn’t lost on us that as of June 20th it’s officially summer in the South Bend – Elkhart region, and we have so much to celebrate! Our region’s small business owners are opening their doors, local restaurateurs are pouring cold ones as patrons toast to lost times, bikers are biking to work again, and our regional amenities are about to get even better! 

To date, over $35.6 million of the Regional Cities Initiative grant has been disbursed to support the region’s 26 quality of life projects. Of the 26 projects, 17 have been completed, eight are under construction, and three are in the planning phase.

In this month’s newsletter we introduce the newest member of our entrepreneurial ecosystem and we share some exciting news about a city in our region! We also highlight our region’s commitment to include and share resources available to help support the rapid economic recovery of our regional companies.

Read down for key updates and highlights from each of our regional initiatives and reach out to us if you would like to get engaged!
