Dubois Strong Awards Seventh Dubois County Relocation Impact Grant

The grant incentivizes out-of-state workers to move to Dubois County. 

MAY 5, 2022 – JASPER, IN – Christina (Christie) Marin has been awarded the seventh Dubois County Relocation Impact Grant. 

Dubois Strong, in partnership with The Dubois County Community Foundation and Radius Indiana, awards the $5,000 grants to out-of-state workers choosing to move to Dubois County. Recipients must commit to staying for at least two years. The grant is part of the Make My Move/Choose Southern Indiana initiative with TMap to incentivize out-of-state workers to move to Dubois County. 

Ms. Marin is relocating from California with her partner, Jonathan Brown, and their daughters. She has a degree in Criminology and will be working for the Department of Child Services in Dubois County. Jonathan will be working for Carpenter Rentals. 

Christie discovered Dubois County and the initiative through friends as she was searching for opportunities to relocate to a more central area of the country. Christie and Jonathan were impressed by the small-town feel of Dubois County and the proximity to major markets. They’re looking forward to getting their kids involved in community activities that they didn’t have the opportunity for in California. 

This grant opportunity provides assistance to Ms. Marin and her family in establishing their new life in Dubois County. 

Additional Dubois County Relocation Impact Grants are available. For more information, please contact Dubois Strong via email at success@duboisstrong.com or by phone at 812.482.9650.
