Programs and Projects

SCIHO is dedicated to expanding housing options for low- and moderate-income households in our community in multiple ways, including:

  • Developing new affordable housing units;
  • Preserving existing affordable housing; and
  • Supporting housing stability for low- and moderate-income households.

As we expand our projects and programs, we welcome opportunities to partner with other developers and agencies to increase the supply of affordable housing in the community. In addition to Monroe County, our service area includes Brown, Greene, Lawrence, Morgan, and Owen

Our current initiatives include:

Developing Affordable Housing

A shortage of affordable housing is a major challenge for many families and individuals who live in South Central Indiana. As a mission-driven nonprofit housing developer, SCIHO aims to ease this shortage with new construction and rehabilitation of affordable housing. Switchyard Apartments is a project we have developed in the City of Bloomington, next to Switchyard Park.
