Preserving affordable housing is a shared responsibility
In 2020 and 2021, Indiana lost more affordable units in the state than were produced due to the expiration of low-income housing tax credits. For the same reason, up to 3,000 currently affordable units in Central Indiana are at risk of losing affordable designation by 2030.
Together – as developers, elected officials, state agencies and philanthropic leaders – we must advocate for affordable housing-friendly policy, fill funding gaps, and think creatively about solutions. Our city has a tradition of highly effective public-private partnerships that have produced results – results that have dramatically improved the quality of life. There is no greater need for our lowest income residents than a safe, stable place to call home.
David Barrett, chairman of the Glick Housing Foundation, contributed a Viewpoint to the Indianapolis Business Journal: Preserving affordable housing is a shared responsibility.
