A variety of partnerships are offered in the Jay County Community Development Office, such as Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) Grant Writing and Administration assistance to the Jay County Communities, Small Business assistance and referral, Indiana Housing and Community Development Association Projects (IHCDA), and Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT). Another service provided by Jay County Community Development is the review of grant proposals before submission for any applications being submitted by a Jay County business or not for profit organization.
