Home buyer Education (HBE) covers all relevant topics for first-time home buyers and anyone who simply wants to improve their home buying skills.
MBCDC partners with the City of Indianapolis, local financial institutions and community organizations to coordinate homeowner repairs for all residents – including roof repairs, replacing flooring, installing new counters and making homes accessible and safe. This is a first-come, first-serve program based on household income. Please feel free to contact us for further program requirements and details.
Lift Indy’s CDBD OOR Program is a Zero Interest, 30 Year Deferred Loan. Loan Amount Range: $10,000- $30,000. Brightwood Education Zone Housing Village Initiative will be led by the Edna Martin Christian Center and will provide wraparound services and programming, such as employment and career coaching, financial coaching, credit and asset-building programs, and adult education programs.
Real Estate & Housing
MBCDC’s Rural Street Comprehensive Development Project is a part of the Martindale Brightwood Education Zone (MBEZ) and Housing Village priority. To ensure the increase and preservation of affordable housing in the area, our plans include building new affordable housing units on vacant lots, expanding an existing community garden to include a learning pocket park, and providing significant repairs and upgrades to the current housing stock on the block.
