Vincennes University will receive a little help on a big project.

The Wabash River Regional Development Authority announced the planned projects for the READI grant.

This stands for Regional Economic Acceleration Development Initiative.

Several counties are a part of the Wabash River region including Knox and Sullivan Counties.

Vincennes University received 100,000 dollars for the continued execution of a Design and Innovations studio.

This studio will focus on introducing advanced manufacturing to students.

Additionally, Vincennes University received two million dollars for the William Henry Harrison Visitor’s Center project.

This money will help the university leverage an additional 8 million dollars.

In Sullivan County, the city of Sullivan received 1.5 million dollars for its central plaza.

This includes a central plaza pavilion for outdoor events and a water feature.

1 million dollars will go towards Sullivan’s new pool expected to open later this summer.

Finally, the city will get 800,000 dollars dedicated to new housing.

The plan is to build at least 40 new homes including townhomes and duplexes in the city of Sullivan.
