Housing Projects Land $20M in Funding

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority has awarded nearly $20 million in funding to 17 low-income housing projects throughout the state. The organization says the funding should give private developers and investors more incentive to provide affordable rental housing options.

The projects received a total of $14.4 million in Rental Housing Tax Credits and $5.5 million in additional funding from the IHCDA's Development Fund, HOME and Housing Trust Fund. The organization says the projects being funded will provide more than 800 additional units of affordable housing options.

Projects in Allen County received more funding than any other county. 

"This announcement will significantly improve the lives of some of our most vulnerable residents, including those who are low-income, chronically homeless, disabled, and seniors," said Kelly Lundberg, director of the Fort Wayne Office of Housing & Neighborhood Services.
