Moving Forward Program

In 2015 the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) and Energy Systems Network (ESN) launched a new, innovative program aimed at providing energy efficient affordable housing and transportation. The program, called Moving Forward, is designed to create housing that increases quality of life while decreasing the cost of living for low to moderate income individuals and families.

On May 1, 2018, Moving Forward Rural Development (RD) was announced. Using the Moving Forward model, IHCDA and ESN will take on the challenge to preserve a minimum of 30 USDA Rural Development (RD) properties at risk of losing their affordability by 2020. Along with this announcement, a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the Moving Forward RD Program was released.

Once the three development teams that responded to the RFQ are selected, they will participate in a series of workshops and meetings in which IHCDA, ESN and other assembled subject matter experts create their plans to bundle at least 10 properties into one multifamily portfolio.
