Prosperity Indiana 2024 Policy Agenda:

Strengthening Housing Attainability and Economic Opportunity for all Hoosiers and their Communities

Prosperity Indiana, a leading advocate for affordable housing and community development, announced its 2024 Policy Agenda, aimed at addressing the pressing challenges facing Hoosiers in the realms of housing attainability and economic opportunity. The agenda outlines a strategic and comprehensive approach to tackle issues such as the inadequate supply and increased cost of housing, equitable pathways to homeownership, and economic opportunity for vulnerable Hoosiers.

According to Prosperity Indiana members, safe, fair, affordable housing and economic opportunities are becoming increasingly unreachable for many Hoosiers. The 2024 Policy Agenda addresses these concerns at federal, state, and local levels, emphasizing the importance of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice in all policy initiatives.

Urgent Policy Priorities

    • Increase the supply, access, and habitability of affordable housing, including options to afford, preserve, and rehabilitate homes.
    • Counter increasing costs for vulnerable Hoosiers through policies that promote wealth-building and mitigate wealth-stripping (e.g., through predatory lending) for individuals and the community as a whole.
    • Address attacks on diversity, equity, inclusion, & justice policies impacting community economic development initiatives such as: reducing barriers to homeownership, wealth building, mortgage assistance; as well as providing support to organizations combating barriers to inclusive education, reproductive options, quality health care, and similar efforts. 
    • State preemption reducing local options on policies such as tenant protections, source of income protections, taxes and revenue, etcetera.
    • Prevent efforts to make regressive changes to Indiana's tax code that would increase the burden on the most vulnerable Hoosiers and the CED organizations who serve them.

In addition to the urgent policy priorities, Prosperity Indiana’s 2024 Policy Agenda includes opportunities to promote community development resources, asset building and consumer protection, and affordable housing in Indiana.
