The Green River Area Development District has updated the organization’s website to include a grant opportunities page — giving nonprofits and businesses all the information necessary to find the funding to fit their needs. 

The page can be accessed here. Users click on icons with topics or use the general search bar to find an overview and eligibility information regarding the different grants currently offered through GRADD. 

Disaster Recovery Coordinator Taylor Burchett and Community Development Planner Hunter Phillips teamed up to create the page.


Burchett said during a Wednesday board meeting the page will be continually updated “as new funding opportunities and applications come and go.”

“Before Hunter and I joined the team at GRADD, we knew there was talk of creating a one-stop shop for all your funding needs,” she said. “I’m happy to say we have created just that.” 

A contact section is provided for those who have additional questions about the available grants, Burchett said.  

GRADD is a regional planning agency serving the communities of Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, McLean, Ohio, Union and Webster counties. GRADD offers assistance in the fields of aging, health and social services; community and economic development; transportation planning; and workforce development.
