Several nonprofit organizations received $900,000 to fund affordable housing initiatives in Marion County.

The Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership awarded the grants to eight organizations.

Executive Vice-President of Strategic Initiatives, Joe Hanson said the funding will help with affordable housing preservation and development.

“Grant funds are to be used for core operating support.  Salaries, light bills, rent, whatever they need to operate their entities. Very flexible funding by design,” Hanson said.   

The latest round of recipients include:
Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity
Mapleton-Fall Creek Development Corporation
Martindale-Brightwood Community Development Corporation
Near Eastside Collaborative Partnership (Near East Area Renewal, Englewood Community Development Corporation, John Boner Neighborhood Centers)
Partners in Housing and Southeast Neighborhood Development

An innovation grant was also awarded to the Near East Area Renewal to establish a city-wide Community Land Trust that will preserve single family homes in Indianapolis.
