IHCDA COVID-19 update: A message from Jake

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently posted award amounts for the Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) supplemental grant funds provided under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. 

The $231,589 in supplemental funds provided to IHCDA under the CARES Act in Indiana will be awarded to HOPWA grantees (pictured below) as additional funding to maintain operations and for rental assistance, supportive services and other necessary actions, in order to prevent, prepare for and respond to coronavirus.


I want to take a moment and acknowledge IHCDA’s HOPWA sub-grantees and our staff that work most closely with them. Together, these seven organizations with support from Diane Walker and Kristin Garvey on our Community Services' Team, assist HOPWA eligible households across our state. Thank you for your service.

Note: Region 7 is not within IHCDA's jurisdiction.To support this region, the City of Indianapolis received a direct allocation of $232,202 in supplemental HOPWA funding.

At our IHCDA Board of Directors' meeting yesterday the board approved financing for our 2019-2020 HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) round (see below). In total, we awarded over $13 million in funding that will create or preserve 216 units of affordable housing here in Indiana.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to any member of our team, or myself directly, if there is anything we can do to help you and your organization.
