Indiana Business Journal recognizes Fourth Economy’s Role in White River communities’ READI Grant submission, projected to attract a cumulative $2 billion

The mayors of Anderson, Carmel, Fishers, Indianapolis, Noblesville and Westfield, and commissioners of Hamilton and Madison County, said they were forming the collaboration to apply for funding from READI, which was established in May to boost community projects promoting strategic investment, talent attraction and economic growth.


“With a data-driven approach, a collective vision already established with the White River Plan and measurable initiatives to track results, we believe that this focus will achieve the goal of creating a regional development plan that will stand out from the rest,” Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen said in a written statement.
