Eight Indiana regional agencies will share more than $137,000 in federal funds to counsel Hoosiers on their housing needs and help them avoid foreclosures.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development this week announced the grants, including the largest in Indiana, more than $20,000 going to the Affordable Housing Corp. of Marion.

Other grants of nearly $15,000 to nearly $18,000 will go to the city of Bloomington, the Elkhart Housing Authority, the Community Action Program of Evansville & Vanderburgh County Inc., the Hammond Housing Authority, the Hoosier Uplands Economic Development Corp. in Mitchell, the Muncie Home Ownership and Development Center, and the Lincoln Hills Development Corp. in Tell City.
