Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann Awards a

$15,000 Planning Grant to the Town of Birdseye

Indianapolis – Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann has awarded a $15,000 planning grant to the town of Birdseye for a public library feasibility study through the state’s Office of Community and Rural Affairs. 

“We are pleased to support the public library feasibility study as the town of Birdseye continues its efforts to improve quality of life and educational opportunities for its residents,” said Lt. Governor Ellspermann. 

The planning grant for the town of Birdseye will assist in determining the most feasible option for the future of the Birdseye Branch Library of the Dubois County Contractual Public Library.

The funding comes from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, which has proven to be an effective tool for community-based planning and research initiatives.  Birdseye provided a $3,500 local match.

The CDBG program is administered by the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.
