Feasibility Study for Buchta  Entrepreneurship & Technology  Center
Last summer EBETC submitted a grant application to
EDA that would create job growth to a coal  suppressed community via the POWER Initiative. EDA sent feedback that they would need a Feasibility Study and other data for grant awards.
 
After receiving feedback, the Board of EBETC has selected USI to perform a Feasibility Study to identify a business model and sustainability plan for the EBETC.
 
The Feasibility Study should be complete by mid-to-late August.
 
Shovel-Ready Site Update
Pike County Economic Development Corporation partnered with Pike County, WIN Energy, Hoosier Energy, and Solar Sources, Inc. to pursue OCRA's Silver
Indiana Site Certification for a 340-acre site, located less than 1 mile from the I-69 interchange. The submission of the certification should be submitted by late
August; the project has maintained on schedule.
