Repair Affair of Harrison County - Repair Affair has been awarded a $3,000 grant for its upcoming home repair event in late September. Repair Affair is a volunteer-based organization that aims to enhance the health, mobility, and safety of financially challenged elderly, disabled, and low-income individuals in Harrison County. They undertake various home repair projects such as fixing roofs, constructing accessible ramps, replacing defective windows with energy-efficient ones, and more.

Battle of Corydon Memorial Park Committee - The Battle of Corydon Memorial Park Committee has been granted $2,750 to commemorate the Battle of Corydon through an event called "A Look Back to Harrison County of 160 Years Ago." The funds will be utilized for various purposes such as demonstrations, exhibits, musicians, advertising, and more during the event scheduled for July.

Blue River Services - Blue River Services received a grant of $60,000 to support the construction of five new duplexes located north of Corydon along Highway 135. This grant will be used to help leverage a match available through federal funds. The Sunset Ridge Apartments project offers affordable housing options for low-income individuals and families. Eligible renters will not be required to pay more than fifty percent of their monthly household income towards rent and utilities.
