What is Dubois Strong?

Dubois Strong is a non-profit public/private partnership established to provide leadership that fosters economic growth. It is our mission to drive the retention and expansion of existing local business while attracting new employers and supporting entrepreneurs, thereby strengthening the county’s competitive position and generating prosperity for all Dubois County residents.

Why support Dubois Strong?

It is an exciting time for Dubois County. Existing businesses are expanding, entrepreneurship is on the rise and we are getting connected in more ways. The growth potential of our County has never looked better and Dubois Strong is positioned to lead, support and collaborate the advancement of these efforts in our communities.

We are focused on growing the workforce population, providing systematic business retention and expansion programs, attracting complementary businesses, and supporting new startups and expansions. We need your support to meet these opportunities head on and ensure the future success and growth of Dubois County.

What is the difference between Dubois Strong and Grow Dubois County?

Grow Dubois County, a 501(c)3 committee, was formed to work in collaboration with Dubois Strong to foster and engage economic development and entrepreneurship in Dubois County. The Dubois County Council, a public investor of the organization, provides dollars to fund specific projects such as the Housing Study and Purdue Technical Assistant Program. The monies to Grow Dubois County are invested directly from the County and are not a pass thru from Dubois Strong. We are very transparent with this and it allows for them to track, monitor and be accountable for those dollars at the program level. The hope is to entice private sector dollars into Grow Dubois County in the future that may be program specific to their needs as well.

Dubois Strong has a specific budget to run the organization to accomplish its goals, objectives and mission. Although the organizations have some crossover as they need to work in conjunction and harmony with each other they are independently run and governed organizations.
