Anchor Housing

About Anchor Housing

Launched in 2016, Anchor Housing is a partnership between INHP, the Indy Chamber and local employers. We work with employers representing education, health and the arts in Marion County to provide matching grants to purchase or repair a home close to their workplace.

Anchor institutions are enterprises such as universities  and hospitals that are rooted in the community.


Individuals may receive:

  • Up to $10K in repair dollars; or
  • Up to $24K in down payment assistance
    (Loan amounts awarded vary by anchor)
