A first-of-its-kind training institute and hotel for people with disabilities will be located in Muncie.
Governor Pence joined Arc of Indiana representatives Tuesday to announce state support of up to $5 million through grants toward the $40 million project providing educational and employment opportunities for the disabled.
Mayor Dennis Tyler says he’s thrilled the two-year discussion has finally become a reality. He says he’s excited for opportunities the center will give disabled workers and says it will encourage further development in Muncie.
The hotel will be branded as a Courtyard by Marriott and will be located on West Seymour Street by the Horizon Convention Center. The center is scheduled to open its doors in June of 2015.
