Repairs to Your Home
At IHCDA, we believe that growing Indiana's economy starts at home. Everyone can agree that all Hoosiers should have the opportunity to live in safe, affordable, good-quality housing in economically stable communities. One of our goals is to assist Hoosiers in generating and preserving assets. The home that you own is an asset that is not only vital to yourself, but also the community in which you reside. As assets age and depreciate, we are sometimes not able to generate the resources necessary to maintain our homes, keep them viable for the long-term, and ensure that our Indiana communities can keep their residents in place.
IHCDA provides opportunities for qualifying Indiana homeowners to receive assistance in order to make much needed repairs to their homes.
IHCDA Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program
Through IHCDA's CDBG Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation program, eligible local units of government and not-for-profit organizations may apply for grant funding in order to complete repairs on owner-occupied residential properties. Funding of up to $25,000 per home may be used to address conditions in the home that, if left unattended, would create an issue with the integrity of the home or become a detriment to the residents' quality of life.
IHCDA does not fund individuals directly. Please see below for a list of recipients that are currently accepting applications for assistance. Applications will be accepted for owner-occupied homes within the county or within the exact city/town as show in the list below.
If your local community is not listed, contact your local unit of government to encourage them to apply for IHCDA Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding for owner-occupied rehabilitation.
