In the case of the convention center, the City of Terre Haute and Vigo County have dedicated $10 million each toward the project.

The Vigo County Convention and Visitor's Bureau will chip in $5 million.

Operations of the center will be funded by the recent passing of the food and beverage tax.

A proposal is expected to be made to the capital improvement board next month.
