Homeownership Month in Indiana

Governor Eric Holcomb issued a Proclamation declaring June Homeownership Month in Indiana. Provided below is the full text:

Executive Order Proclamation To All To Whom These Presents May Come, Greetings:

Whereas the nation’s home builders offer the opportunity of homeownership to an increasingly wide segment of the nation’s families;

Whereas the lower mortgage interest rates that are available today are making it easier for young working families to become home owners;

Whereas the opportunity to own a home and live in decent housing is the strength of the nation and the source of the spirit of civic-mindedness that shapes the caring and nurturing of communities where our citizens live;

Whereas the nation’s home builders have contributed mightily to America’s quest for affordable homeownership opportunities by pursuing greater efficiencies and innovations in building techniques and materials;

Whereas home builders today offer the American consumer a product that is geared for affordability and the level of quality that home buyers expect;

Now, therefore, I, Eric J. Holcomb, Governor of the State of Indiana, do hereby proclaim June 2018 as Homeownership Month in the State of Indiana, and invite all citizens to duly note this occasion.

Please join Indiana Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch, the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA), local, state and federal officials, profit and not-for-profit organizations as we celebrate Homeownership Month with a special event Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 10:30 am. The event will take place at 1909 N. Yandes Street in Indianapolis where two home builds will be underway led by Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity.

Joining IHCDA will be representatives from the following organizations:


Homeownership has long been the cornerstone of the American dream, representing more than just shelter but an enduring symbol of achieving prosperity. Unfortunately, according to data from the United States Census Bureau, the percentage of homeowners in the United States continues to fall. However, the percentage in Indiana remains well above the nationwide average at about 70%. Please join us in recognizing the individuals and organizations that are helping to make homeownership possible for Indiana families.
