2017 Owner-Occupied Repair Program

We’re pleased to announce that we are partnering with the Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity (GIHFH) to provide $300,000 in home repair funding to qualifying residents in 2017. These funds will be provided to the home owner in the form of a no-payment, no-interest, 30-year deferred loan.

Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity will be coordinating repairs themselves while we will provide outreach to residents and will intake and process applications. Priority will be given to projects which require exterior, energy efficiency, and health and safety repairs, as well as those which most highly leverage our CDBG dollars.
