The Recovery Housing Program provides funding for communities to provide stable, transitional housing for individuals in recovery from a substance use disorder. The funding covers a period of no more than two years or until the individual secures permanent housing, whichever is earlier.
The Indiana Office of Rural and Community Affairs is administering this pilot program in partnership with the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration to build or rehabilitate facilities to provide temporary, supportive housing. A total of four allocations have been granted to the State to administer the pilot program totaling $3.69 million.
RHP was authorized under Section 8071 of the Support for Patients and Communities, or SUPPORT, Act. HUD published its formula in the Federal Register on April 17, 2019 (84 FR 16027), identifying the 25 eligible grantees and allocation percentages.

Lead applicants must be an entitlement city, non-entitlement city, county or incorporated town that possesses the legal capacity to carry out the proposed program. The lead applicant may contract with a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization to carry out the activities of an eligible project, provided that the organization can document its nonprofit status with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, the Indiana Department of Revenue and the Indiana Secretary of State.
