One local region is getting ready to announce its plans for the Regional Economic Acceleration and Development Initiative or READI.

The Wabash River Regional Development Authority will host a press conference today at 3:30 PM.

The region is made up of several counties including Knox, Sullivan, and Vigo counties.

During the conference, officials are expected to announce some of the projects they’ll be funding through the program.
