Prosperity Indiana is a statewide membership association of persons and organizations committed to advancing thriving, resilient families and vibrant, connected communities through comprehensive community economic development. Achieving prosperity for all Hoosiers lies within the work of our members to help meet basic needs, preserve and expand affordable housing, and connect individuals and families to education, employment and economic opportunity.
The success of those efforts requires the support of strong, innovative policies that help build a society where all persons have access to economic and social opportunity. It requires the vision and leadership of policymakers and administrators who understand systems-housing, education, human services, workforce, business development, transportation, health, etc.-to advance strategies that address community needs.
For more than 30 years, Prosperity Indiana has been successful in working with policymakers to launch programs and advance policies towards those goals. Despite those advancements, however, significant work remains to ensure persons of all ages, races, abilities, and income levels are included in the economic mainstream and live in sustainable communities.
Throughout 2018, Prosperity Indiana will continue to advocate for priorities to address those challenges by lobbying policymakers, mobilizing members, facilitating discussions between state departments and local governments and organizations, and connecting members with information and advocacy opportunities. The accompanying policy priorities provide specific positions championed by Prosperity Indiana to strengthen our communities.
