Housing to Recovery Fund

The City of Indianapolis and the Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF) are soliciting qualifications from organizations with capacity and experience to deliver quality supportive housing. Services will be funded, in part, by the new Housing to Recovery Fund using an outcomes focused funding model. This fund supports Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett’s challenge for the community to develop 400 units of supportive housing for persons experiencing homelessness.

Moving to a performance based contracting model will require a paradigm shift for both funders and service providers; as such, it is essential that the goals of this new model be understood. The following goals have been established by the funders for this initiative.

1. Connect persons currently experiencing homelessness with supportive housing including those who are frequent or high utilizers of crisis systems such as justice or emergency health care.

2. Build service provider capacity for long-term sustainability.

3. Clearly define and measure the impact of supportive housing for the individuals to be served.

4. Directly connect funding to the identified outcomes.

5. Change the paradigm from managing homelessness to ending homelessness.
