Prosperity Indiana Selected for Opportunity Starts at Home Campaign

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.  February 16, 2024 — Prosperity Indiana announces its selection as one of seven new State Grantees for the national Opportunity Starts at Home (OSAH) campaign, marking a significant milestone in advancing the organization's commitment to affordable housing.

The OSAH campaign has awarded Prosperity Indiana a capacity-building grant to enhance its ongoing efforts in the state's housing coalition. The grant will be utilized to expand partnerships with stakeholders from various non-housing sectors, including health, education, racial equity, labor, food security, climate, faith, and anti-poverty sectors.

"Prosperity Indiana is grateful for the continued support of the National Low Income Housing Coalition through its Opportunity Starts At Home campaign. We are thrilled to have the chance to continue developing our multi-sector partnerships, including our pioneering work with Indiana faith-based leaders, who have been incredible champions for good housing affordability & stability policy in Indiana and nationwide," said Hale Crumley, Prosperity Indiana Policy Manager, who manages the OSAH campaign.

The new grantees were chosen through a competitive proposal process, demonstrating a strong commitment to advancing federal affordable housing solutions, amplifying racial equity, and expanding partnerships. By becoming state affiliates of the OSAH campaign, Prosperity Indiana and other grantees gain access to resources, multi-sector networks, and technical assistance.

“Today, the campaign celebrates nearly six years of working towards our shared vision of having a multi-sector movement in every state,” said Chantelle Wilkinson, national director of the Opportunity Starts at Home campaign. “As state partners continue to join our efforts, new coalitions of doctors, teachers, environmentalists, social workers, faith leaders, housing advocates, and many others are working together to urge policymakers to address a basic need – housing. This work is critical. It is powerful for Congress to hear from national advocates, but it’s especially powerful for them to hear from their own constituents in the states they represent.”

In addition to welcoming Prosperity Indiana, the OSAH campaign has extended grants to the African American Clergy Collective of Tennessee, Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio, Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness, North Carolina Housing Coalition, South Carolina Association of Community Action Partnerships, and Virginia Housing Alliance.
As Prosperity Indiana continues this partnership, the organization encourages the community to follow their housing initiatives, including OSAH, through Prosperity Indiana's website, ProsperityIndiana.org/OSAH and on social media platforms.
