Northeast Indiana is an incredible place to live, work, and grow your business. The Regional Cities Initiative of Indiana has brought together the diverse communities of Northeast Indiana through the Northeast Indiana Regional Development Authority (RDA), and has been helping to make Northeast Indiana a magnet for talent from around the nation. The Road to One Million plan has been given $42 million by the state of Indiana to match funds to quality projects in Fort Wayne and the Northeast region, and aims to draw one million people to the Northeast region by 2031. What this means for residents of Northeast Indiana is revitalized downtown areas, more city developments drawing new business to the area, and improved quality of life. Recently voted #5 in the nation as a best run city, Fort Wayne yields some of the highest returns on all of its public spending investments. In the downtown area of Fort Wayne, the new Ash Skyline Plaza, almost completed Cityscape Flats, and planned Downtown Arena will create hundreds of jobs and draw many new businesses.

In Northeast Indiana, the communities are as diverse as the people who live here. In the northern region, with over 100 natural lakes, there is no shortage of lakefront property and tight knit communities that are unique to this area. If a vibrant nightlife is what draws you, Fort Wayne, the second largest city in Indiana, offers no shortage of venues and festivals for every interest and culture. Families can quickly see the draw to this region. Fort Wayne has been recognized as one of the best places to raise a family and one of the most affordable places to live in the nation. Home to two of Indiana’s top 20 High Schools, Homestead High School and Carroll High School, many are drawn here to give their children an opportunity for success.
