To support engagement by stakeholders in the Regional Economic Acceleration and Development Initiative (READI) quality of place award process, the South Bend – Elkhart Regional Partnership will host four identical educational sessions during the month of June. These sessions will complement the Request for Proposal (RFP) document that will be released by the Regional Development Authority (RDA) in mid-June 2022.

The educational sessions will include a presentation overview of the READI RFP, with guest speakers from Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) and Ernst & Young (EY), along with South Bend – Elkhart Regional Partnership staff, and a short Question and Answer section.
