Affordable Housing Development
Through the Area IV Development Corporation, community economic development and affordable housing projects are provided that benefit low to moderate income persons, older adults (age 55 +), physically and mentally disabled persons, homeless persons and special needs populations who reside in mid-northwestern Indiana. We are committed to seek out and provide housing that improves the local economy and overall quality of life for our target populations.
Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8)
Area IV contracts with the State of Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) to provide rental housing assistance to low income individuals and families.
Owner Occupied Rehabilitation (OOR)
This program enhances our weatherization program. Homes are identified as needing additional services beyond the scope of our regular weatherization services. Major household systems may be repaired or replaced as part of the rehabilitation process in order to meet the stricter of the Indiana State Building Code or local building codes.
