Because one in five Hoosiers will be 65 by 2025, IHCDA began collaborating with FSSA’s Division of Aging in the fall of 2008 to develop a program, Home Again, that would provide rental assistance to seniors on Medicaid who desire to move from a nursing home back into a more independent and affordable community setting. It is estimated that 5,000-6,000 nursing home residents could make this transition based on the availability of support services, as well as the affordability and accessibility of housing.
We will continue to partner with developers to make rental units in IHCDA’s portfolio affordable and accessible for nursing home residents. Other opportunities for Hoosiers to “age in place” are currently under review and we are seeking new ways to provide housing options and opportunities for seniors and those with disabilities to age in the communities of their choice.

Federal resources are available to provide improvements to owner-occupied homes. Seniors may benefit from repairs that address health and safety, accessibility needs, and energy consumption for your home.
