OOR Program Administered by The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority ("IHCDA")
This federally funded program administered in Indiana by IHCDA provides grants to selected applicants for the rehabilitation of homes owned by low-to-moderate income residents. Eligible activities include repairs to an inoperable or faulty furnace, leaking roof or unsafe electrical wiring, plumbing, lead-based paint abatement, and mold remediation. Target populations for this program include individuals with disabilities families with children under the age of 6, aging in place households, veterans, and single-parent families.
The dollar amount for each home is limited to $25,000. We have worked with the homeowners to prioritize the improvements and we will do as many as the funding allows.
