Seeking Indiana's Stellar Communities
Stellar Communities is an innovative new state program created to fund comprehensive community development projects in Indiana’s smaller cities and towns. This new program is a partnership between three state agencies: the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA), Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA), and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT).
Local units of government in Indiana that are considered non-entitlement areas as defined by the federal Housing and Urban Development guidelines are encouraged to submit a letter of interest for the program. Selected communities will complete multiple community development projects funded by the three partner agencies’ programs, which may address housing, infrastructure, roadwork, streetscape, lighting, community centers, revitalization projects, and other quality of life issues.
Two communities will be chosen for the program’s pilot, expected to be announced in the first quarter of 2011.
Interested communities can learn more here.
