Duke Energy awarded grants of up to $5,000 to 19 Indiana economic development groups for two separate programs. The Whitley County Economic Development Corporation and Grow Wabash County were two of those recipients.

“The Marketing Partnership Program and the Foreign Direct Investment Partnership Program are designed to help local economic development groups strengthen marketing efforts to help attract jobs and investment to the communities within our Indiana service territory,” Erin Schneider, director of economic development for Duke Energy Indiana, said.

To qualify for program consideration, each applicant must submit a marketing plan that has a direct impact on the community’s economic growth and supports Duke Energy’s economic development goals. Grant funding does not include travel, lodging, food and beverage and entertainment expenses.

Duke Energy Indiana, a subsidiary of Duke Energy, provides about 6,600 megawatts of owned electric capacity to approximately 840,000 customers in a 23,000-square-mile service area, making it Indiana’s largest electric supplier.
