The Indiana Site Certified program certifies sites that are ready for economic development. Communities of any size may apply for the designation through the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA).
Indiana recognizes three tiers of readiness: Silver, Gold, and Prime.
Indiana Site Certified sites are featured on Indiana’s Site Selector Database and will be included in the Indiana Economic Development Corporation’s (IEDC) marketing materials.
Site data and documentation is reviewed by the FASTeam (Fast Access Site Team). Sites are responsible for providing annual updates in order to maintain a current inventory.
Applications for certification are accepted on a rolling basis. The first step is to contact your OCRA Community Liaison who will be able to offer current program details, evaluate readiness to proceed, and provide application instructions.
Applications will only be accepted using the online portal found here but you must request sign in access through your Community Liaison. The application you will be completing through the portal is viewable here.
OCRA, on behalf of the community, will engage the multiple state agency FASTeam for prompt approval and certification.
