THE FOLLOWING PRIORITIES ARE CHAMPIONED BY OUR MEMBERS IN 2022

AFFORDABLE HOUSING

  • Increased renter protections for tenants to address serious habitability violations and address key issues that have helped fuel the eviction crisis in Indiana

  • New housing stability measures for those economically impacted by COVID-19, including sealing or expunging eviction records and providing a right to access and correct errors in tenant screening records

  • Enhanced opportunities and reduced barriers impacting community land trust programs to permanently preserve affordability and create homeownership opportunities for lower-income families

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT RESOURCES

  • Enhanced mechanisms for local communities to fund land banking efforts and address the burdens of blight and abandoned property

  • Building momentum to enact new state tax credit resources to expand affordable housing for low-income households in the next state budget cycle

  • Defense of key tax credit programs that spur economic opportunity in local communities, such as the Individual Development Accounts (IDA) tax credit and the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) tax credit

CONSUMER PROTECTION/ASSET DEVELOPMENT

  • Establishing a max 36% rate cap for payday loans and opposing predatory products that disproportionately affect low‚Äźwealth individuals or families

  • Safeguards against predatory rent-to-own contracts, where companies target low-income households and sell uninhabitable homes at high interest rates and terms that leads the borrower to default
