The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority has allocated a $500,000 grant to help with housing rehabilitation in Marshall County. The Community Development Block Grant will assist 16 homeowners through the owner-occupied rehabilitation project.
Marshall County Crossroads was designated as a Stellar Region in 2019 and identified owner-occupied rehabilitation as a priority in its Strategic Investment Plan.
Each homeowner will receive a subsidy of approximately $31,250. The program seeks to serve targeted populations of individuals with disabilities, families with children ages six and under, veterans, and single parent households.
“We are thankful for our network of partners and Marshall County for their work to strengthen the quality of housing in their community. These funds will directly impact the families whose homes will be rehabilitated and make Marshall County a better place for all who live there,” said Jacob Sipe, executive director of IHCDA. “We remain committed to allocating funds that provide Hoosiers a higher, more sustainable quality of life.”
The Stellar Communities Designation Program was launched in 2011 as a multi-agency partnership designed to recognize Indiana’s smaller communities that have identified comprehensive community and economic development projects, as well as next steps and key partnerships
