So much of the work done at Grow Wabash County would not be possible without the generous support and grant funding provided to us by various state,regional and local organizations.

In 2023, the grant funding we received went to fund many programs and initiatives including: scholarship funding for Wabash County residents, employing Manchester University students as interns, carrying out due diligence on prospective industrial land and the continuation of our marketing efforts to generate business development and foreign direct investment for Wabash County.

Thank you to the following organizations that awarded us grants in 2023:
Community Foundation of Wabash County
Duke Energy
Manchester University
Wabash Valley Power Alliance
