Southern Indiana Development Commission



The purpose of the CDBG program is to provide habitable and affordable housing as well as economic opportunities for low and moderate income persons.  IHCDA is tasked with using its portion of CDBG funds to improve the quality of existing housing stock in Indiana.



The HOME program provides funding to support the development of rental and home-buyer units (for both rehabilitation and new construction), as well as other housing activities.

Development Fund

The Development Fund provides a non-federal resource for not-for-profit organizations to not only seek financing for housing, as listed above, but also for a limited array of community and economic development activities.

Neighborhood Assistance Program

The Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) offers $2.5 million in tax credits annually for distribution by not-for-profit corporations.  Organizations use NAP tax credits as an incentive to help them leverage more contributions from individuals and businesses for certain neighborhood-based programs and projects.

Eligible projects include affordable housing, counseling, child-care, educational assistance, emergency assistance, job training, medical care, recreational facilities, downtown rehabilitation, and neighborhood commercial revitalization.  All projects must benefit economically disadvantaged areas and/or persons.
