Malagari announces $100,000 in funding for Indian Creek Foundation
HARRISBURG, June 22 – State Rep. Steve Malagari announced today that $100,000 is being awarded to Indian Creek Foundation to support neighbors with special needs who live in Montgomery and Bucks counties.
“The availability of quality affordable housing is something that helps families and the economy grow and should be within reach for everyone in every community across the commonwealth,” said Malagari, D-Montgomery. “These dollars will help hundreds of our neighbors who deal with extraordinary circumstances remain independent and homeowners.”
Indian Creek Foundation operates 23 residential care homes that serve the daily needs of more than 100 adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Many of these individuals also have mobility issues due to aging or physical conditions which severely limit their ability to move freely about their homes for routine activities. This public project will renovate and repair six houses to maintain appropriate living conditions for those with disabilities who desire to maintain their residence.
The funding comes from the Pennsylvania Housing Affordability and Rehabilitation Enhancement Fund, or PHARE, which was established to provide for the delivery of state and federal funds, as well as funds from other sources, to help create, rehabilitate and support affordable housing for all throughout Pennsylvania.
More information about the PHARE program can be found on the PA Housing Finance Agency’s website.
