IHCDA COVID-19 update: A message from Jake

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, construction of new affordable housing has continued throughout the state of Indiana. In fact, two developments broke ground just this week:

  • Glasswater Creek of Whitestown – This new 126-unit affordable housing development will be located at 5875 Perry Worth Road in Whitestown. Led by CRF Affordable Housing, Inc., this development will offer assisted living and independent living opportunities for seniors. American Structurepoint is providing architecture, interior design, and structural engineering services. Amenities will include: a theater, activity-based destinations, fitness area, social gathering areas, an internet/café bistro, and multiple dining options to include restaurant-style and grab-and-go dining options.
  • Pando Aspen Grove of Community Heights – This new 30-unit permanent supportive housing development, which will be located at 5226 E. 16th Street in Indianapolis, is being led by TWG and Lutheran Child and Family Services. Targeting youth aging out of the foster care system, Pando will offer wraparound services with amenities that include laundry machines, offices for support services, a computer lab, a common room, and a food pantry. A bike share program and outdoor space will help to further enhance the living experience.

Congratulations to both development teams on your ground breaking! 

I would like to take a moment to thank our entire network of affordable housing developers, Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs), and others that have each made the necessary adjustments to ensure we continue with the new construction and rehabilitation of our affordable housing development. You may not realize it, but IHCDA annually finances over a half billion dollars to support the construction of affordable housing across Indiana.

As always, I want to thank you for your continued partnership and support to help Hoosiers in need. If there is anything we can do to help you and your organization please don't hesitate to reach out to me or any member of the IHCDA team. We're #INthistogether.
