My Community, My Vision
My Community, My Vision (MCMV) is a youth planning partnership between the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) and Ball State University (BSU). The program is in its fourth year and was developed with the belief that young people in Indiana should not have to leave their hometowns in order to achieve their dreams. Previous participating groups have developed community vision plans that lay the groundwork for student entrepreneurship opportunities, community gardens, bike-share programs, farmer's markets, and other programs students wanted to see brought to their hometown. Past youth-driven plans have been adopted by local units of government and one group even raised about $4,000 in grant funding and in-kind donations to implement projects developed in the MCMV planning process.
The 2017-2018 My Community, My Vision (MCMV) program's application period is now closed. The program is in the process of developing formal and detailed plans with support from the Ball State University’s School of Urban Planning and the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA). This year's participants are the City of LaPorte, City of Logansport/Cass County, Purdue Polytechnic School (Indianapolis), and Irvington Prepatory Academy (Indianapolis).
Information regarding the 21-8-2019 program will be available last Spring/early Summer of 2018. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
