About Lift Indy

Each year, the City of Indianapolis designates a new Lift Indy area through a data-driven and competitive process. The selected area will receive a significant portion of two U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grants – the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).

Lift Indy comes as part of Mayor Hogsett’s commitment to transforming Indianapolis neighborhoods. This strategic investment of public funds aims to support the growth of economic development opportunities, the preservation and development of quality affordable housing, creative placemaking, availability of social services, infrastructure, public amenities, social engagement, and other aspects of quality of life that make up a complete neighborhood. The funds will be targeted in areas where public investments could help realize market potential.

Letter from the Prez, Tom Dale regarding the EVENING meeting next week.

Letter from the Prez:

Dear Stadium Village,

Next Wednesday April 18th we will be holding our first evening Stadium Village Business Association meeting at Omnisite located at 203 W. Morris St. (See picture below)
We thought we would hold one of these evening meetings once a quarter for folks that have a hard time coming to the morning meetings. Omnisite is graciously hosting this meeting for us in their new facility. Tom Ward, Lindsay, and the crew will be serving light appetizers and refreshments to us. Come and see what Tom has done to this age old building that was once a furniture factory.

The meeting will start at 5:00 pm with 30 minutes of networking and refreshments and our meeting starting at 5:30 pm. You’ll get a glimpse of all the exciting projects in Stadium Village, get an update on the neighborhood from Judith Essex, hear about our Beautification plan for May, and also hear about some new businesses moving to the area.

Hope to see you all there!! Plenty of parking is available on the west side of the building. Thanks for all your support.
