Federal Funding Approved to Tear Down Blighted Homes in Indiana

- Many of Indiana's cities should soon have money needed to help clean up their neighborhoods.

The lieutenant governor and other legislative leaders announced the federal government approved $75 million of Indiana's "hardest hit fund" to eliminate blighted, abandoned houses.

The money is allocated to allow communities to tear down thousands of empty houses and determine plans for the properties.

The $75 million will allow Hoosier communities to demolish 4,000 houses. City leaders across the state can start applying for the money later this week.
