INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded $78 million to housing authorities across the country to help residents increase earned income and lessen dependency on public assistance. Thirteen Indiana housing authorities were among those receiving funding.
