Fund Story

In the fall of 2019, the communities of La Porte County joined together to embark on a momentous effort to develop a new county-wide Action Agenda. Having been thirty years since the county’s last plan, and witnessing growth in surrounding counties, a coalition of leaders decided it was time to join together to define a pathway forward.

The Vibrant Communities of La Porte County Movement is a community-wide effort to develop a unified vision. Over a six-month process, over 900 people were engaged in a discussion about the future of their community, generating over 4,000 unique comments, thoughts, and ideas. The Vibrant Communities Action Agenda is the result of this input serving as a roadmap towards making the communities of La Porte County more vibrant and prosperous.
