Housing Resource Hub

We are proud to introduce the Housing Resource Hub, a data-driven initiative aimed at creating high-impact housing solutions through robust public-private partnerships. Our comprehensive approach encompasses a wide range of housing types, from workforce housing strategies to low- to moderate-income, senior housing, and market-rate developments. The Housing Resource Hub serves as a valuable resource for individuals and communities interested in creating and expanding housing opportunities.

It can be hard to access capital as a new or growing business. Thrive is dedicated to encouraging the entrepreneurial spirit that drives business development in our communities. Working with local governments, the Just Transition Fund, the Economic Development Administration (EDA), and the U.S. Department of Agricultural (USDA), we are accepting applications to provide low interest loans to businesses in Clay, Montgomery, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, Vermillion, and Vigo counties.     [Learn About Spark]
