INDIANAPOLIS – COVID-19 presented unprecedented challenges for Hoosiers, Americans, and people around the world in 2020. In addition to the impact the virus had from a global health perspective, COVID-19 financially impacted families across the globe.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Indiana, IHCDA used a combination of new and existing programs to increase housing security in Indiana. In total, IHCDA was able to support more than 136,000 Hoosier households across all 92 counties through mortgage assistance, energy assistance, and rental assistance in 2020.
IHCDA’s 2020 achievements were a direct result of collaborative efforts with strong partners and state leadership to develop and implement programs that reflected current and emerging housing needs in Indiana. These partnerships allowed IHCDA to work strategically to maximize available resources and meet the mission of IHCDA which is to provide housing opportunities, promote self-sufficiency, and strengthen communities.
IHCDA is proud of its accomplishments and eager to continue it work to get past the COVID-19 pandemic and continue making Indiana a great place to live, work, and play.
