Something from Newton County

The Newton County Park Board is considering buying an 18-acre property in the Roselawn area for a community park. The bit that caught my attention was this:
The funding for this project is possible through resources from the State of Indiana that comes from the Riverboat Funds which are available to Indiana counties that do not have a riverboat. These funds can only be used for recreational projects and cannot be injected into the county general fund.
And my question should be obvious--does Jasper County or communities in Jasper County tap into these funds in any way?

(And while looking at area parks, a long clip on youtube looks at the Delphi Canal Restoration project.)
