Indianapolis Housing Agency announced it will receive $1.5 million to provide Emergency Housing Vouchers to people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
The money will come from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of the $5 billion the department received through the most recent federal pandemic assistance package.
IHA expects to have the money by July 1 and will work with Indianapolis Continuum of Care to distribute the vouchers. The agency estimates it can help a little more than 200 families with the money from HUD.
In March, the agency announced it would allocate an additional $1.5 million to reduce homelessness.
