Strategic Planning


Wabash River Regional Development Authority

Quality of life continues to be the buzz amongst communities locally, state-wide and nationally and rightfully so. It’s becoming increasingly more important to emphasize quality of life for communities to attract and retain talent. For Indiana, this became even more important for the 2021 Indiana Economic Development Corporation’s (IEDC) Regional Economic Acceleration and Development Initiative (READI). Regions across the state had the opportunity to compete for millions of dollars to advance quality of life projects for their regions. Knowing opportunities like this come few and far between, the West Central Indiana Regional was ready to put their best foot forward.

RJL Solutions was hired by the Wabash River Regional Development Authority (RDA) to develop a plan on behalf of the 6-county region. With an emphasis on workforce, tourism and talent attraction and retention, the plan was composed of 23 projects throughout the six counties. In development, RJL Solutions facilitated conversations on behalf of the RDA, local leadership, the IEDC and all the project stakeholders to compose a plan worthy of millions in return. As a result, the IEDC awarded West Central Indiana $20 million to advance priority projects.

To date, several projects have received their funding while many others are completing the administration requirements and will soon receive their funding. As a result, West Central Indiana has boosted its own quality of life, with much credit going to the projects in the READI proposal.
