The Gary and Region Investment Project (GRIP) launched when nearly 200 participants attended the GRIP the Future event on Oct., 27, 2010. Community leaders, business leaders, elected and appointed officials, and representatives of various institutions from across Northwest Indiana gathered at the Gary Genesis Center to identify a few key investments that can catalyze the region’s revitalization.
In addition to those in attendance at GRIP the Future, some 650 residents and stakeholders took the GRIP Survey, helping to focus the region on key investments and criteria for selecting those investments, and marking a critical milestone in the effort to stabilize and reinvest in Northwest Indiana’s urban core. The GRIP Report provides an overview of GRIP the Future, including survey results, partners, and frequently asked questions, and summarizes the outcomes of the launch event and subsequent outreach. The report’s timeline also looks ahead to GRIP Phase II: Implementation.
