Join Deputy Mayor Mary Catherine Carmichael and Economic and Sustainable Development Director Alex Crowley as they discuss the recent $1.9 million grant from the Indiana Uplands READI Steering Committee and Regional Opportunity Initiatives for a local infrastructure project.


Bloomington will receive $1.9 million in grant funding through the state's Regional Economic Acceleration and Development Initiative (READI) program. These funds are designated for an Infrastructure Project with City of Bloomington Utilities (CBU), that will benefit not only Monroe, but Brown, Greene, Lawrence, Martin, Morgan, and Owen Counties. 


CBU will use READI funding to replace 1,570 feet of clay sewer pipe, improving flow from South Patterson and downstream along an arterial corridor. This improvement creates increased manufacturing opportunities, including expansion at Catalent, which is advantageous to employers looking to expand and create job opportunities.
