Choose Southern Indiana

Radius Indiana has launched Choose Southern Indiana to promote population growth to our 8-county region. Orange County is seeking Veterans to help grow our population. The lower cost of living for our region is just one perk of choosing Southern Indiana. Do you know a Veteran transitioning back to civilian life in Indiana? If so, read more about current incentive offers and criteria to apply. 



Boston International Joins Forces with Economic Gardening Program

We asked Boston International about their experience so far with the Economic Gardening Program facilitated by Purdue Center for Regional Development. "This program has made us take a deep dive into our digital marketing platforms. The program has also offered us the ability to increase visibility of our best performing sales persons," said Jill King.

If this sounds like something your business could benefit from, connect with OCEDP to see if you meet the criteria to participate.
