SCIHO Awarded $500,000 Affordable Housing Program Grant

South Central Indiana Housing Opportunities, in partnership with BloomBank, has been awarded $500,000 in competitive Affordable Housing Program grant funds from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis for the development of Switchyard Apartments.

Investigating Community Housing Needs

SCIHO has completed a Community Housing Needs Assessment to document the City of Bloomington’s housing needs.


  • Housing costs in Monroe County are the highest in Indiana, and demand for low-cost rentals far outstrips supply.
  • In Monroe County in 2011-13, there were only 14 rental units affordable and available for every 100 extremely low-income renters–a decrease of 22 percent from 2000.
  • Bloomington must build its local capacity to increase the production of affordable housing.
