Housing

We make safe, attractive housing available to homeowners and renters of low to moderate income levels.

Home Repair Assistance Program

Our home repair program makes houses safe and livable for low to moderate income homeowners. It allows seniors to age in place, people with disabilities to maintain independence, and families to live with dignity.

This program covers the cost of critical maintenance and repairs to roofs, gutters, sewers, windows, and more. We also help residents who are aging or disabled receive handrails, smoke detectors, and yard work.

Donate to the Home Repair Assistance Program.

To qualify for home repair assistance, you must own and live in your home, pay your property taxes, and earn below 80 percent of Marion County’s median income.

INHP Homeownership programs

Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership® (INHP) is offering two unique homeownership incentive programs: Home Value Guaranty and Rehab Match. Click here to learn more about INHP’s programs.

Home Value Guaranty®
Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership’s (INHP) Home Value Guaranty (HVG) program incentivizes homebuyers to invest in designated areas within five Indianapolis neighborhoods: Crown Hill, Mapleton-Fall Creek, Riverside, St. Clair Place and Englewood.

The program guarantees that after seven years, your home will appreciate 5 percent above the total cost to purchase and repair it. 


You can purchase:

  • A vacant or abandoned home that needs extensive repairs.
  • A new or rehabbed home put on the market by a local community-based organization or developer.
  • An empty lot for building a home.

View the HVG program brochure.

Eligibility
You are eligible if you earn up to 120% of HUD’s Area Median Income (AMI).

Take advantage of INHP’s outstanding loan offerings:

  • 3% down payment
  • Low-interest loan
  • 20-year loan option

Rehab Match®

Curb Appeal Fund

MFCDC cares for dozens of properties in Mapleton-Fall Creek and the surrounding neighborhoods, but we can’t do it alone. The Curb Appeal Fund supports our beautification efforts: sweeping streets, mowing lawns, removing trash, and edging sidewalks. 

These improvements go beyond surface level. By improving the neighborhood’s curb appeal, we increase quality of life for homeowners and raise average home values.

We rely on your support to continue our work. Donate now.

Individual Development Account

An IDA, or Individual Development Account, is a four-year, matched-savings program designed to assist individuals in achieving self-sufficiency through financial literacy and asset generation. For each dollar you save, up to $250 a year, the State of Indiana will match it with three dollars. This means if you successfully save $250, then the State will match it with $1,000, totaling a combined savings of $4,000 over the four-year period.

You can use this money to further your education, enroll in a job training program, purchase a vehicle, buy a home, start a small business, or pay for essential home improvements.
