As Indiana communities poise for additional growth, many find that they need to begin focusing on new housing stock to accommodate and attract new workers and families. High-end home ownership is happening in some communities, but home ownership opportunities lag in the middle market and below. As communities try to address new housing options, leaders are looking for tools to help them address housing for a range of income levels for workers. Communities are looking for ways to stimulate new development, rehab existing housing stock, or create in-fill options in older neighborhoods.
