November 1, 2021 – CareSource, a nationally recognized nonprofit health plan, has invested $2.5 million toward a new partnership with INHP. The goal of the new partnership is to bolster efforts to create homeownership opportunities for individuals and families experiencing disproportionate wealth and racial disparities in Marion County.
“A main goal of ours is to be able to improve housing access for people who are traditionally left out of homeownership and to support the state in its efforts to bring about equity for all Hoosiers,” said Steve Smitherman, CareSource Indiana president. “Through our partnership with INHP, we’re taking steps toward achieving racial equity.”
“In 1988, INHP was founded upon a partnership culture to help eliminate real and perceived barriers that people with low and moderate incomes, who are disproportionately Black people and people of color, face regarding housing,” said Moira Carlstedt, president and CEO of INHP. “The work is not done, the need is growing, and we are grateful CareSource has chosen to partner alongside us in our pursuit of creating more equitable and inclusive housing opportunities for Indianapolis residents and the neighborhoods in which they chose to live.”
