Indiana Supportive Housing Institute celebrates 16th year

Indianapolis, Ind. (January 31, 2024) – Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA), and Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) have announced the four teams selected to participate in the 2024 Indiana Supportive Housing Institute.

The Supportive Housing Institute is a premier workshop experience that helps housing developers, service providers, property managers and community-based organizations jumpstart supportive housing projects that combine affordable housing with access to supportive services. The Institute sessions outline evidence-based practical steps towards implementing supportive housing developments targeted to communities in Indiana. The teams were selected through a competitive process.

"The Institute continues to be an intentional opportunity for organizations to develop detailed, individualized supportive housing plans," said Lt. Gov. Crouch, Indiana's Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development. "Past participants have experienced great success applying the Institute's training to development in their communities and we are excited to continue encouraging dynamic projects in 2024."

This year marks the 16th year of the Indiana Supportive Housing Institute and the ongoing partnership between IHCDA and CSH to bring more affordable supportive housing across the state for individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

"The Indiana Supportive Housing Institute is an opportunity for IHCDA to promote housing stability for those experiencing homelessness," said Jacob Sipe, executive director of IHCDA.
