Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch and Denny Spinner, Executive Director of the Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA), recently appointed Downtown Wabash, Inc. Executive Director Andrea Zwiebel to serve the State of Indiana as a member of the Rural Affairs Working Group.

The governor has tasked this group with investigating avenues to set the course for Regional Recovery through new OCRA programs or the use of existing OCRA programs such as the Stellar Communities program. The Rural Affairs Working Group will be using resources from the Purdue Center for Rural Development. Purdue will facilitate conversations on how Hoosiers can partner together to help lead rural communities to the Next Level recovery.
