Workforce Housing Program

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.
