The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs has awarded nearly $11 million in federal grants to 23 Indiana communities. The funding covers five program categories, including blight clearance, main street revitalization, public facilities, stormwater improvement and wastewater drinking water.

The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Community Development Block Grant program. OCRA says the goal of the grants is to ensure health and safety and improve quality of life for residents.
