Blight Elimination Program

The State of Indiana, through Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA), is using a portion of Indiana’s Hardest Hit Funds to demolish blighted and abandoned homes that are beyond repair. The goal is not simply to demolish abandoned homes, but to stabilize property values in Indiana communities. The partnership between IHCDA and Indiana municipalities allows communities to demolish blighted properties and offer a variety of end uses for the newly cleared properties, including green space and redevelopment.

Since IHCDA’s announcement that it was exploring the use of Hardest Hit Funds to eliminate blighted and abandoned properties, many have expressed concern that doing so might detract from the mission of helping struggling homeowners avoid foreclosure. IHCDA would like to reassure the public that it is committed to using the majority of Hardest Hit Funds to help individual homeowners in need. We’ve provided more than $65 million to Hoosiers in 91 counties.

NOTE: No additional Blight Elimination Program funding is available outside of Funding Division One. Award recipients may contact Rayanna Binder at RBinder@ihcda.IN.gov.

More information on Indiana’s Hardest Hit Fund

The U.S. Department of the Treasury established the Housing Finance Agency Innovation Fund for the Hardest-Hit Markets (Hardest Hit Fund) to provide financial assistance to families in the states most impacted by the downturn of the housing market. The U.S. Department of the Treasury designed the overall program to give each participating state the flexibility to tailor its program to the unique factors contributing to its state’s foreclosure problems. The Hardest Hit Fund is a national program available in 18 states and the District of Columbia. Indiana was awarded more than $221 million under the Hardest Hit Fund and is targeting low- to moderate-income homeowners whose primary residence is in any county in Indiana.
