State recommends increased funding for SCCAP to expand its service area for weatherization of homes with stimulus money

The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority is recommending that SCCAP receive $1,729,957 in the second round of ARRA Weatherization funding to serve Brown, Monroe and Owen counties.

This funding, which still has to be approved by IHCDA’s Board of Directors, would allow an expansion of the number of homes and counties that SCCAP weatherizes with these Recovery Act funds. During the first round of funding, SCCAP received $899,000 to make energy efficiency improvements to 145 homes in Monroe County. SCCAP had applied to serve Brown, Monroe, Morgan and Owen counties in the first round of funding, but was approved to serve only Monroe County.

The $1.7 million in second-round funding would allow SCCAP to make energy efficiency improvements to 275 homes in Brown, Owen and Monroe counties. This would include 55 homes in Brown County, 152 in Monroe County and 68 in Owen County.     

IHCDA’s Round 2 recommendations  for organizations across the state are provided below. There will be a public hearing at IHCDA at 9 a.m. on May 27 to discuss these recommendations. Public comments are currently being accepted and can be emailed to or may be sent to Chelsey Wininger’s attention at IHCDA.
