Montgomery County offers the best of both worlds. While it’s most known for its agricultural community, the dynamic of the area is changing with the rapid growth of Crawfordsville. As a 2015 Indiana Stellar Community Designee, Crawfordsville is focused on Quality of Place initiatives to attract talent and business. Surrounding areas still remain largely rural with agricultural and industrial-based employment, and its small town roots are still present. Residents enjoy the low cost of living and proximity to natural amenities, like parks and attractions such as Sugar Creek, while still having quick access to all the amenities a small city has to offer.

Childcare Initiative

 A shortage of early learning programs, resulting in childcare-related employee absenteeism, has a profound effect on the local workforce supply. Supporting early learning and child care has become a top priority in our community. In 2019, a child care task force was formed comprised of individuals representing local government, employers, providers, parents, schools, and nonprofit organizations.
