Community Development Block Grants

Rural communities have many pressing needs that require outside financial assistance. Through the Office of Community and Rural Affairs, Indiana requests federal funds to help rural communities with a variety of projects such as sewer and water systems, community centers, health and safety programs, and many others. These funds help communities improve their quality of life and ensure the health and safety of their citizens.

Through these funded programs OCRA will help you sustain your Indiana rural community.
