Dearborn & Ohio Counties Business Website Development Project

websiteOne Dearborn and the Dearborn & Ohio Counties Broadband & Digital Inclusion Task Force wants to help our local businesses and non-profits thrive in an increasingly online world.


Are you too busy with day-to-day operations to create a company website? 

          Don't have the in-house knowledge to create a website?

                    Is even a basic website currently out of your business or organization's budget?


The Business Website Development Project could be your FREE solution! Inspired by the 2022 Southeastern Indiana Regional Digital Inclusion Plan, the Dearborn & Ohio Counties Broadband & Digital Inclusion Task Force created this program to assist existing local businesses and organizations in establishing or improving their online presence. Thanks to funding awarded by the Duke Energy Foundation and Purdue Center for Regional Development, the task force is inviting up to 10 businesses or non-profit organizations to take advantage of this free program.
