Far east side named next Lift Indy neighborhood

More by this author

The far east side joined the growing list of Lift Indy neighborhoods, which means the community will receive $3.5 million to support anti-poverty services, a home repair program and a new trail that will feature garden beds.

The far east side becomes the seventh Lift Indy neighborhood, joining the Mid-North area and Monon16, among others.

Projects supported by Lift Indy:
• Wraparound services at Community Alliance of the Far Eastside (CAFE) to help families out of poverty and improve their quality of life. CAFE estimates it will serve nearly 3,800 clients over the next three years.
• A new trail called Orchard Trail, a pedestrian-friendly route that leads to 38th Street and has access to adjacent neighborhoods. The trail will also have garden beds for the public to grow fresh produce.
• Owner-occupied repair programs through Mt. Paran Church’s HOPE CDC to serve 27 homes in census tract 3604.
• Edge Fund HomeSmart Affordable Home Mortgage Program through Renew Indy to make affordable housing accessible to 10 low- to moderate-income homebuyers on the far east side.
• HomeMATTERS Rehab-Homeownership through Renew Indy to help stabilize the neighborhood with 10 new homeownership opportunities by rehabbing existing homes.
“Our Far Eastside partners have laid out a powerful and positive vision of what the future can be for families who call the Far Eastside and Eastside home, with attainable and accessible food, housing, and greenspace.” City-county councilor LaKeisha Jackson said in a press release.
