Income Surveys Needed for Community Center Grant

NJCommunityCenterWayne Township residents who’ve received an income survey are being reminded to fill it out and return it as soon as possible, in order for the North Judson-Wayne Township community center project to move ahead. A sufficient response rate is necessary, in order to determine whether grant funding will be available from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.

All information will be kept confidential and will only be used to determine the township’s eligibility to OCRA. Income information for those living within the Town of North Judson was obtained last year as part of the application process for the town’s water tower rehabilitation grant.

North Judson officials are scheduled to discuss the proposed community center with an OCRA representative today. Project organizers say OCRA funding may be able to cover nearly half of the $830,000 cost of the project. They’re also working to finalize a land donation.
