Marian University’s anchor housing program offers down payment assistance to staff and faculty interested in buying a home in the Riverside area east of campus.

Here’s how it works: Marian University’s program provides a five-year, forgivable loan to purchase a home within a specific area east of Riverside Park. Each year, on the anniversary of the month you closed on your loan, 20 percent of the loan balance will be forgiven. After five years, the loan will be completely forgiven.

This program is facilitated by the Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership (INHP), and offered to you as an added employee benefit. For information about your current list of employee benefits, contact the human resources department at 317-955-6072.
