INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs is partnering with the Family and Social Services Administration to launch the Recovery Housing Pilot Program. The program will allocate funding for communities to provide transitional housing for people in recovery from substance use disorder.

The state has received more than $1.7 million to administer the program, which will be used for building or rehabilitating facilities to provide temporary, supportive housing.

“Many people in our state are struggling to overcome substance use disorder,” OCRA Executive Director Denny Spinner, said in a news release. “Through RHP, communities can help these Hoosiers by providing a roof over their heads as they continue on their road to recovery.”
