To support the Hoosier Housing Needs Coalition’s efforts to increase housing affordability and stability for all Hoosiers

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.  November 20, 2023 — Prosperity Indiana has received an inaugural grant totaling $375,000 from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust to support housing affordability and stability for all Hoosiers.

“Prosperity Indiana is proud to serve as the state’s premier convener and advocate for community economic development, including affordable housing issues,” Prosperity Indiana Executive Director Aspen Clemons said. “We are honored to partner with the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust to ensure that all Hoosiers have access to affordable and stable housing. This grant will allow us the opportunity to expand the role of the Hoosier Housing Needs Coalition in educating Hoosiers and stakeholders statewide about solutions to address Indiana’s housing affordability and stability crisis. The grant will provide Prosperity Indiana with additional data capacity and educational resources to improve pathways to safe, stable, and affordable housing, and eliminate barriers to homeownership and long-term rental housing solutions. In addition, the grant will allow Prosperity Indiana and the Hoosier Housing Needs Coalition to continue serving as a premier convener to lift up the voices of the community economic development sector on housing issues, including those of the most vulnerable Hoosiers affected by housing policy decisions.”

“Over the years, Prosperity Indiana has built a strong statewide network of organizations devoted to helping Hoosiers find and stay in housing,” said Gene D’Adamo, CEO and president of the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust. “We are honored to support their efforts to improve the conditions of low-income renter households and long-term housing outcomes in Indiana.” 

The Hoosier Housing Needs Coalition [HHNC] was formed by members of Indiana’s housing security advocacy community in April 2020 to support advocacy and education related to housing and homelessness prevention. Staffed by Prosperity Indiana, HHNC convenes partners from across Indiana to provide education and advocacy to achieve equitable federal, state, and local policies for housing stability and affordability solutions. HHNC is guided by a Steering Committee composed of a diverse group of Indiana housing advocacy and education leaders.
