WIRED Initiative

The Peru Tribune :: Peru, Indiana - Region to receive economic development funds

The North Central region of Indiana (Miami, Wabash, Howard, Tipton, Cass, Fulton, White, Carroll, Tippecanoe, Warren, Fountain, Clinton, Montgomery and Benton) will receive these funds, as a part of the WIRED initiative, or Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development, and they will be paid over three years. This grant was spurred due to the low percentage of adults with Bachelor's degrees (only 1 in 8) in North Central Indiana. This rate is one of the lowest in the state of Indiana.
