"This funding will allow service providers across Indianapolis to extend critical services as part of broader efforts to alleviate homelessness and assist our most vulnerable residents," said Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett. "Indianapolis and our local partners are grateful that HUD is continuing to fund all renewal projects. We are committed to long-term solutions that address systemic homelessness while increasing access to wraparound services that help our neighbors succeed."
