Indianapolis Super Bowl project gets $1M boost

November 5, 2010

The JPMorgan Chase Foundation is donating $1 million to complete funding for an $11.2 million health and recreation center in Indianapolis tied to the city's hosting of the 2012 Super Bowl.

The grant clears the way for construction of the Chase Near Eastside Legacy Center. It will include an NFL Youth Education Town.

The facility is scheduled to open in January 2012. The John H. Boner Community Center will own the facility and operate it jointly with Indianapolis Public Schools.

The Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee says the center is a key part of its legacy project to revitalize the near-east-side neighborhood.
