$50,000 goal to receive a matching grant through IHCDA’s CreatINg Places initiative
Greensburg, Indiana (December 1, 2021) – Greensburg residents will soon have better access to a true
Inclusion Park if this crowdfunding campaign reaches its goal of raising $50,000 by December 31,
- If successful, the project led by Decatur County Community Foundation, Inc. will receive a
matching grant as part of the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority’s (IHCDA)
CreatINg Places program.
Funds from this campaign will be used to purchase and install two accessible features in the soon-to-be-
developed new playground in Greensburg’s Rebekah Park. Designed to be inclusive ‘from the ground up’,
Greensburg Inclusion Park will deliver a unique and welcoming recreational experience that enables
children of different ages and abilities to do what they do best: play.
“Over the past few months, our committee has been working to bring the only purpose-built destination of
its kind in South-East Indiana serving children and adults of all ages and disabilities,” said director
Brendan Bridges. “We look forward to the day that we are able to provide this inclusion park, so that all
individuals have the opportunity to come together to interact and play.”
The CreatINg Places program began in 2016, projects have raised more than $5.7 million in public funds
and an additional $4.6 million in matching IHCDA funds.
The program is available to projects located in Indiana communities. Non-profit entities (with 501c3 or
501c4 status) and Local Units of Government are eligible to apply.
Eligible projects must have a minimum total development cost of $10,000, where the recipient will receive
$5,000 in IHCDA matching funds should it successfully raise $5,000 through Patronicity. IHCDA will
provide matching grant funds up to $50,000 per project.
