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.
For those commercial property owners who want to improve the look of their facade (and beautify the neighborhood), there is grant money available to help out. Some of the members of the SVBA have taken advantage of this opportunity in the past. If interested look at the link below to find out details. This is time-sensitive because the application deadline is Jan. 9th.
