Thousands of Hoosier renters facing eviction in the coming weeks might get a little help from the state.

The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority is giving workforce housing funding to build homes in a Superfund site in East Chicago. At least half of the homes will be sold to buyers making 50 percent or less than the area’s median income as determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The rest will go to families making 80 percent or less. 

The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority announced Thursday it’s selected four Indiana employers for the Anchor Employer Workforce Housing Program. The businesses will each receive $1 million to address a shortage of housing for workers.

State Launches Program To Connect Veterans With Jobs, Housing

Jan 26, 2018

State officials Friday announced a new program that connects veterans with job opportunities and housing. It’s also an effort from the state to fill tens of thousands of unfilled jobs.

The program is called Next Level Veterans – a source for career training and a homebuyer program tailor made for veterans. The state launched a website to act as its hub.

Gov. Eric Holcomb says he wants veterans to consider making Indiana home, as they transition back to civilian life.

Remaining residents of a lead-contaminated public housing complex in East Chicago are gearing up for a fight about the city’s plans to relocate them.

Sixty-seven families still lived in West Calumet Housing Complex as of Wednesday. It’s less than a quarter of the original residents in the neighborhood, which sits in a federal Superfund site and is slated for demolition, pending federal approval.
