About Grant County Economic GROWTH Council

Predominately a manufacturing and agricultural community, Grant County is rich in history and brimming with opportunity.

Boasting a low cost of living, Grant County is located in the heart of the Midwest with easy access to many major metropolitan hubs, including Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. Conveniently situated halfway between Indiana’s two largest metro areas, Grant County is just 1.5 hours outside of Indianapolis and 1 hour outside of Fort Wayne. Grant County is also home to two world-class universities—Taylor University and Indiana Wesleyan University—as well as Ivy Tech Community College–Marion, offering plenty of employment training opportunities.
