FORT WAYNE, Ind. (NBC33) - Community leaders in northeast Indiana are working to create a national identity for the region, and they need your help for the next step.

The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership and Greater Fort Wayne Inc. have released Phase 1 projects proposed in the Regional Cities Initiative.

Northeast Indiana is the largest region in the state vying for $42 million through the competition.
