North Judson Clerk-Treasurer Alicia Collins says income surveys have been completed. They’re used to determine whether the town and township are eligible for grant funding for the project from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs. Collins says project organizers are now awaiting the results.
She adds that they’re still seeking donations for the project, as well as letters from residents explaining why the area needs a community center. Those letters are another part of the grant application process.
Organizers plan to submit that application next month. The OCRA grant would cover $500,000 of the community center’s roughly $840,000 cost.
