Hancock County Economic Development Council is pleased to be a 2019 recipient of Duke Energy’s Marketing Partnership Program grant.

The program is designed “to help local economic development groups strengthen marketing efforts to help attract jobs and investment to the communities within our Indiana service territory,” said Erin Schneider, director of economic development for Duke Energy Indiana.

To qualify for program consideration, each applicant must submit a marketing plan that has a direct impact on the community’s economic growth and supports Duke Energy’s economic development goals.

“We are certainly appreciative of Duke Energy’s generosity and the funds are a very welcome addition to our marketing budget,” says HEDC executive director Randy Sorrell. “We will use the funds to make our website more appealing and user-friendly to visitors to our site.”
